Clinging Cross

The pattern for this cross is from the Carving magazine. The credit goes to Jane Davis who carved the crosses for volunteers who were traveling to New Orleans to help clean up after Hurricane Katrina. This clinging cross is carved from butternut and the finish is linseed oil, so it would have a soft feel to the cross.

  1. Nice looking job there my friend..
    I saw that in the CM...maybe I will give it a shot.. Butternut would be a good choice of woods as it is also nice and light and the color comes out with a little oil or wax.
    Have a nice day,
