Cross No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

We needed a Cross for our house church. I made this from a piece of Oak, stained with a dark Walnut stain, it stands about 5 ft tall.. The Crown of Throns, is really a crown of thorns from our flower garden we removed a Rose bush and I recycled the branches and made the Crown of Thorns. I was stuck by the thorns many times while I was building the crown, and then I thought about Jesus who had to wear the Crown of Thorns and was nailed to the cross and died for us. I didn’t complain about being poked with the thorns anymore.

A beautiful cross and a true statement. God bless.
