As part of a role that I intend to play at an event I will be playing the part of a Monk. This wooden cross was cut from a square dowel purchased from Home Depot. I cut a lap joint in two pieces and hand finished the joint with carving knives. I glued the cross and then stained it with some of my homemade black walnut stain. The cross is strung on a line of finger loop braded cotton string.
