Solid Oak Cross
I spent the afternoon installing this solid oak cross headstone in the local cemetery. The family of the deceased wanted a sculptural hard wood headstone that was to be inspired by two stones they had found.
I hand sculpted the oak to recreate the smooth finish of the rocks that had been worn smooth over time. We had brass plaques made up at the local engravers. The cross is finished with Osmo Oil, a green outdoor oil finish.
