Christ Lutheran Church in Blair, Nebraska, needed a new cross, so they called on Bob to make one for them. He built this 8-foot beauty with maple, red oak, and walnut using the Layered Cross plans. Due to local availability, he had to use thinner stock, but the cross still looks fantastic!

Great work, Bob! It's always exciting to see Layered Crosses go up in churches around the nation!

    The thickness of the cross looks perfect in ratio to the height of the cross. It appears the thickness is 3/4"? What is the thickness.

    Do you have a total board count that is needed to make the 8’ cross?
