Barnwood & Lathe Cross Sign

Today I played more in the workshop and made five more crosses (I will show you those next week) and this cross sign.

I used barnwood for the front,

and lathe from our schoolhouse for the cross.

It was a pretty simple build, here is what the back looks like:

I used glue on the long vertical pieces that joined the barnwood together and the nail gun. I finished it with Minwax Polyacrylic in a gloss finish.

Because this is for sale, I just propped it on my little stool table for photos.  I am sure it will find a happy home soon.
