Completed work – Green Oak Cross

Steve McIlveen Completed work

The client had an old wooden cross from a grave which had seen better days. The brief was to recreate the cross in green oak.

As the cross is made from green oak, I used a traditional mortice and tenon joint with green oak pegs. As the wood dries out, the joints will shrink and the pegs will pull the joint even tighter together.
