Palm Crosses I have been making these crosses for a few years. The first one was as a special request from a woman whose sister was going through chemo, and she wanted her to have the comfort of a cross to hold during the treatments. Since then, I have made dozens of them out of various kinds of wood. They are unfinished and the oils from the hands of the user provide a patina to the wood….walnut and koa react especially well. They are about 4 1/2 inches tall and carved and sanded into a pleasingly smooth, “hand-friendly” shape. These in the picture are Koa and Oak.
