Around Christmas last year I made myself this cross. I’m a pastoral assistant at our church and I wanted my own cross to wear, instead of just one of the ones provided. It’s made of recycled oak from an old pallet joined by a cross-lap which I made using a crosscut sled on my table saw. The center brass is set in an 1/8 in. wide dado. The edge brass is just an angle cut and glued. Two eyelets on the back keep the string from moving so no one ever sees the knot.

Nice and simple but makes a big statement.

Oak and brass combo is striking Dave. Nicely done. The double eyelet/hidden knot is inspired ;-) I bet it starts a lot of conversations. Thanks for sharing.
