The Latin Processional Cross in Mahogany with Stand has both the front and back as forward facing finished side. Both sides are the same.
Height of Cross = 20″, Width = 12″, and 1.5″ Thick.
Pole Height = 60″ and 1.5 inches in Diameter.
Over all Height of Cross with Pole = 80 inches.
Measurements are 16″ x 16″ x 15 height.
The Cross, Pole and Stand are finished with a Mahogany Stain and Clear Satin Polyurethane for a hard long lasting finish. This Latin Processional Cross in Mahogany with Stand can also be made of Oak Wood.
I can also make this with a shorter staff if needed for a child. The Cross with Staff is about 5 pounds making it much lighter than a brass or bronze processional cross.
I take great pride in my work. No art work leaves my shop until I am satisfied.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
From the time I made those first few 16 inch Celtic crosses I had no idea it would lead to other wall crosses, ceremonial crosses and processional crosses. In some sort of way it all seems to have grown and evolve on it’s own. One idea leads to another and so on and so on. There is an unlimited amount of art work one can put into Celtic crosses and wall crosses. Maybe that’s how the Celtic people felt long ago. Each of my wooden crosses is a unique piece of art.
I like to hand pick all of my wood for my wooden crosses. Some times I am looking for a nice straight grain and other times with the grain running wild. Most of the wood I use is Mahogany, Oak, Maple and Walnut. The cross sizes I most like working on are from around 1 foot to around 4 foot.<br>I like making different styles of crosses and using different decorative motif patterns and designs of inlay work.
At times I start of with an idea in mind for my wooden crosses, but the total picture of it is not yet clear in my mind. These are times when you just need to get away from it and relax, or take a walk and get your mind off of it. Sometimes part of creating or designing something you need to let it come to you. Your best thoughts come with a clear open mind. You know it when you see it.
My favorite architectural styles for my wooden crosses are Early Roman, Medieval Gothic and Greek Byzantine. I have in mind doing a few free standing floor crosses, table crosses and alter crosses using these architectural styles.
My wooden crosses work includes: wall crosses, ceremonial crosses, processional crosses, Celtic crosses, Celtic people, motif patterns, inlay, architectural, roman, medieval, gothic, Greek, byzantine, floor crosses, table crosses, alter crosses, early roman, and many architectural styles.
