This is the second cross I made for a customer using box elder and this time it has the red. He wanted red where the hands and feet were on the cross. I was losing the red in the horizontal piece from running it through the jointer so I had to finish it with light sanding. If he likes it, the cross will be placed on the podium by the alter in his church in Traverse City.
It is 17” high and 11 1/8 wide and 3/4” thick. It was dadoed using the kerf maker and it puts it right on for fit- I love that tool!! (Thanks for the inspiration on that one, Mads!!)
It is finished with 6 coats of clear matte spray.
