This board has much meaning and purpose. My father was recently ordained as a minister. A lady which is a life long family friend (English teacher that taught my father and myself) played the piano just for his ceremony. He asked me to make a “cross board” for her as a Christmas gift for him to give her in appreciation. This is what I came up with. This was the first one I had to make from the inside out due to the cross. I wish it was my best work but I can’t say that. As a perfectionist the visible section lines in the maple drove me nuts. But she loved it and placed it on a display shelf in her home. The cross is purple heart.

Wish the photo was a little better, I like the overall design, but it is hard to tell much of anything about the grain from that pic…
