So, Yes, I did it again. I created another set of crosses. Well, I’m still in the midst of creating them. I do have four done and ready. You can find them on Etsy.com. More specific at www.etsy.com/shop/eSeagroves.
I able to create 9 more crosses by cutting down all the parts which is no small order. Then went through and sanded them all down. I wanted to go in for the details, like rounding some parts off, and I did. This made the process take a bit longer then I expected.
Once I had them all sanded it was down to staining. I used a PolyShades Bombay Mahogany Gloss Stain and Polyurethane in 1-Step for the dark pieces. It looks great but in the end, I still wanted another coat of clear to give it a better shine look. I also used a Golden Pecan Stain for the medium lighter tone used for the middle pieces.
The top cross and the small sides are meant to be white, except the first cross I put clear polyurethane on them and they became golden a bit. So, three out of four of them, I left the top crosses alone; only clear coating from there down. I think I like that better.
Anyways, I’m going to finish these up and get them up on Etsy.
