Wooden Cross

Ever since I started woodworking I have wanted to make my own wooden cross. Since this is the start of Holy week I figured it was a great time to finally do it.

TOOLS & MATERIALS

  1. Wood
  2. Circular Saw
  3. Sander
  4. Hammer
  5. Nails
  6. Chisel

Step 1:

The two pieces of wood i uses were slightly different in width. So i took the thicker thinner one and pushed it again the blade. I then set the fence so I could cut the other piece to the correct width.


Step 2:

I decided to use a half lap joint which is something I have never done before. It took me awhile but i finally got it done. My circular saw has a depth stop so I used that to make a bunch of notches in the wood. I then used a hammer to knock those pieces off and chisel to clean it up.

Once the opening was smooth I used the hammer to push the two pieces together.


Step 3:

I used spray lacquer to finish the wood and it brought the beauty of it out. I decided to add three nails to my cross. I recently had taken a lot of pallets apart and saved all the nails. So i used those for this project. I thought that was fitting.


This project meant a lot to me and Im glad I finally made it. This was way easier to make than I thought it was going to be.
