Rustic, Reclaimed Wood Crosses

Today was a playing in the workshop day--nothing that HAD to be done.  But, I do need to be prepping for my next show, so that is what I did.  

I want to bring 10 crosses to the show and today I made five of them.

Each one is different.

I made four that I left unpainted and one colorful one.  Tomorrow I will make 5 more, most painted I think.

I liked the nail holes on this one.

This cross has crown molding on it.

Loved the gorgeous patina on the barnwood I used for this cross.

The skinny wood pieces on this cross are lathe pieces from our 1932 schoolhouse.

I also used the lathe on this colorful cross.

I am excited to make more tomorrow!  Which is your favorite?

  2. Love the top one where the wood makes an X in the middle.

    1. Thanks Teri, that wasn't my plan when I cut the wood, but then played around and came up with it.

  3. Love the barnwood one hands down. I spent some of my happiest childhood days at my aunt and uncles home in Kentucky. The barn was such a magical place to me. I loved the cows and the hay loft and even the smells. Lol. Good luck on your show Becky.

    1. Thanks Deb. Sometimes I still get cow smell on the barnwood. I like the one with the X in the middle, which is also barnwood, because of the nail holes--makes me think of the nail holes in the original cross.

  4. They crosses are wonderful, I love most the colored one and will start to make a cross like this in the next days (because I first have to look for old wood in my workspace).

    Thank you for your blog, it is a fantastic inspiration for me,

  7. I like the painted ones best! I have a bunch of lathe boards and am going to be a copycat! Thanks, Becky!

  8. They are all truly wonderful but I have to admit the colorful one makes my heart sing. Love the one with the beautiful patina too. It has a special air of prayer about it.
