This walnut wall cross is a Steve Good pattern but ,as always, I can’t leave well enough alone. I cut it from 3/4 in. thick walnut instead of 1/4 in. thick like the plans call for. I then used a reclaimed tongue and groove board that’s been kicking around the shop for the “stained glass” church window shaped back board. I cut 2 pieces, split one, then glued it to each side of the full board for a nice rustic look. To bring out the grain contrast i did a light sanding with 80 grit on an orbital palm sander.
