I have made this cross from 3 different types of wood. The top cross is made of mahogany, the large center cross is made of ash and the final cross in back is made of walnut wood. the complete cross in 8 1/4" tall and6" wide.It is 1 1/2" thick from front to back. This is quite a heavy piece of frett work weighing 11 ounces. On the very front is Jesus nailed to the cross.This would make a lovely gift for a religious person or simply for yourself. The cross has been painted with deft semi gloss finish.
