Making an LED backlit Cross for my childhood church just in time for Easter. I used traditional hand tools and hand cut mitered bridle joinery to connect the wood pieces.

Nice work! I think I finally understand what a router plane is for! The way you used it made sense. Great finishing on the whole thing.

Bo Bojangles says:

Nice work! But am I the only one that finds it disconcerting to see people gleefully smile as a replica torture/murder device is hung on the wall. (lit with colour changing lights, no less) What a weird world we live in lol

Mike Case says:

Excellent work!

I was seriously just talking to the pastor about doing something like this for the kids area. They currently have a ~7' tall cross on a stand made from 4x4s that gets knocked over all the time.
