Simple wooden crosses that can be held in the hand. I like my crosses to be very plain with little ornamentation. I don’t like the idea of the beauty of the object overwhelming the prayerful purpose of the cross. The two crosses show are part of a larger lot I made.

Very nicely done. Your philosophy reminds me of the Knight Templar telling Indiana Jones: “you chose wisely.”

The power of the cross is evident and needs no added ornaments. These are nice. How do you inscribe ‘Love’? Dremel? Knife?
