I was asked to make a simple cross recently for a deceased pet.
Its made from 3 and a half inch by an inch and a half hardwood using a half lap joint, it stands at 30 inches tall by 17 inches wide making it 1:3 ratio.
I still have to varnish it and when the plaque is finished by the engravers fit the plaque.
The joint is a nice tight fit which is then glued
It makes a change not to work greenwood.
I'll get some pics up when its finished.
