The front and back of this Wood Oak Latin Processional Cross are both the same. Both front and back are a finished side with brass inlay, so I guess you might say both sides are a front side.
This Oak Latin Processional Cross is made of Oak with 1/4 inch hammered, peened and polished brass inlay work on both sides.
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.
The Oak Stand measurement is 16′ x 16″ x 15″ high
The Cross, Pole and Stand are finished with a Golden Oak Stain and Clear Satin Polyurethane for a
hard long lasting finish. This Processional Cross and Stand can also be made of Mahogany Wood.
I can make this with a shorter staff if needed for a child.
The Oak Latin Processional Cross with Staff is about 7 pounds making it much lighter than a solid brass or bronze
All of my work is of my own Design and Cut. I take great pride in my work. No art work leaves my shop until I am satisfied.

If you don’t see the Cross you are looking for contact me, I do custom orders.
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.
