I take great pride in the fact that all of my creations are cut by hand using a scroll saw. Then they are sanded, stained or painted and finished with my own hands. It is truly amazing the pieces of art you can create with your own hands when you put a great deal of time and patience into your work!

This is a scroll saw cut cross with a wedding theme to it. Some of the highlighted items on the cross are: a bride and groom, doves, wedding bells,a church, a cross, a flower, wedding rings and the word Love.

The size of the cross is 10 1/2" wide by 16" tall. The design was cut out of ¼” oak plywood. Once I apply the pattern I am going to use to the wood I then cut out the exterior shape of the piece. The next thing I do is carefully drill all of the holes into the oak wood that represent areas that I will cut out. Then it is time to thread the thin saw blade in each hole and follow the pattern to remove that section. Once that hole is completed it is time to re thread the blade in the next hole. This process can be as few as 3 holes per cutting up to hundreds of holes. Once I am done cutting the design it is sanded smooth. First I use 200 grit sandpaper and then work my way up to 400 grit to provide a super smooth finish. Following the sanding I blow all of the dust off of the cutting and then applied two coats of golden oak stain. When the stain is completely dry I then spray on three coats of polyurethane. The polyurethane helps to protect the stained finish and also gives the wood a glossy shine.

The backer of each piece is cut from ¼” birch plywood and then it is also sanded smooth. First I use 200 grit sandpaper and then work my way up to 400 grit to provide a super smooth finish. Following the sanding I blow off all of the dust from the backer piece and it is ready to be painted. I spray on two coats of black spray paint. I have found that black paint allows the details to show up the best in the cutting.

The next step is to glue the design piece to the backer. I allow the glue to set up 24 hours and then I work to remove small bits of fuzz that the polyurethane process leaves behind on the design.
The last thing to do is attach a sawtooth hanger on the backer so that once you receive the wedding cross it is ready for you to hang up and enjoy for years to come!

This cross would make a perfect gift for any couple that is getting married.

The pattern that I used to create this cross was designed by Sue Mey.

I love creating fun unique items that can be displayed in your home for everyone to enjoy!
