Those are rustic looking Ivan. I like them. Funny, I just asked my daughter if she wanted to add a cross for a project I’m making her and she said no. I could of been making crosses too.

You seem to have “crossed” some people—still very unique and nice projects.

I really like them. I’ve found that most members won’t comment on religious-themed projects, probably worried about getting someone angry. I say look at the project and leave your baggage at the door. I’ve been looking for a cross design and I’m thinking I’ll use yours, job well done!!!

I always leave my baggage at the door, and that bleeding priest threatens to excommunicate me if I don’t clean it up with my dusty.

Nicely done. How did you cut the joint (looks like a lap joint?)? Were the two pieces flat at that point and then rounded?
