This was just sort of a quick yet real nice project. It is made from backyard maple from the woodpile that has been slightly spalted. The base is made from a chunk of apple i cut with my chainsaw. The cross is held in by my first (successful) mortise and tenon joint. I have a mortise gauge that I got familiar with while doing this project and I must say I love it! I put a few coats of clear shellac on the piece. And yes, it is crooked but do you think the Romans used a square an Calvary?
The cross is currently for sale on my Etsy Shop. Thanks for looking and God bless!
