    Simple project completed

    Wasn't sure if I should post these pictures or not.

    Black Locust face glued with epoxy and 5 soakings of BLO. Cross is half lapped and epoxies and screwed with 5 stainless steel screws.

    My daughter, her husband and 2 of my grand daughters, Abby and Lizzie made it official today while I was at work. I don't think that I could of been there anyway.

    Hope the pictures came out OK. They are from my daughters cell phone and emailed to me.

    Just noticed that the pictures won't enlarge. The cross is cnc engraved to read Eliot Robert Green. There is a heart and dove wrapped around the date 4.26.13

    Not sure why the pics won't display bigger, but kudos on the cross. Memorial type projects are always a bit tough, but can be very fulfilling, too.

    Seems like it must have been a much tougher project than you let on.

    Looks like a great job, and much appreciated.

    Well done Bob.

    Beautiful job on it Bob.

    Nicely done Bob
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Looks great Bob, Might have to copy the larger size on the next ones my wife asks for to place on her parents site, not sure if they get stolen/borrowed or if maintenance removes them, but they never stay put for long...
