The question: Do I do things other than crosses? Answer: Yes! I chose 2 woods from the Jewish scriptures. The Star of David is made of olive wood. One triangle is made of the sapwood (plain) while the second triangle is made from the heartwood of the olive tree (marbled grain). The 12 pegs are turned from Cedar of Lebanon; the wood used by King Solomon to build the Temple in Jerusalem. The challenge was the complex joinery is this relatively simple symbol of faith.
