Completed in 1989. My grandmother received a decorative cross from the funeral home after my grandfather passed away. I made the cross much nicer by mounting it to this pecan and walnut cross and adding the inscription plate. It hung on her wall until she passed away.

Making four pieces meet in a miter joint is no easy task. I finally used a cutoff sled with guides attached to pull it off. I just love the grain and colors of these woods together.

Thanks, it was a special project that meant a lot to my grandmother. I was very pleased with the way the woods worked out.

Very nicely done—it certainly improve the appearance and display ability of the original cross. I’m sure your grandmother treasured your thoughtfulness.
