This is a natural edge cross made with box elder. The top is the bark and the bottom is getting close to the pith of this log. It is 14” high, 9 1/2” wide and 3/4’ thick. It is finished with clear matte spray.
This is the second one from this log. It is going to a craft sale at our church in 2 weeks.

Beautiful Jim.
Really elegant with the natural edges.
Hope it will make a good price.
