MEANING: This handmade Cross is formed from a single line woven into a braid. The Celts believed the one-line weave represented Eternity. This enhances the virtue of the eternal nature of the faith in God and Jesus Christ. The Circle woven through the members can be seen as putting all parts (mind, body, spirit; self, family, world; etc.) into a relationship with Jesus...
The earliest Christians extended the bottom leg of the Celtic Wheel Cross to create the Celtic Christian Cross. The circle woven around the vertical and horizontal members defines the Celtic Christian Cross.
This is the perfect cross for display in a Christian Family home and makes a wonderful gift for your favorite collector of Christian Crosses!

Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each carving begins as a 1 X 12 inch cedar board. While we use power tools (Scroll Saw, Rotary shaft Tool, handheld detail sanders etc.), we use no laser’s, CNC machines or computer operated cutting machines. All work is done with our hands and eyes…
We cut the 2 dimensional blanks with scroll and jig saws (double-sized custom orders have to be cut with jigsaw). Carving is done with rotary shaft tools and disc grinders. The 80 grit sanding is the final phase of the carving process, removing the nicks and gouges from the carving tools, and finishes the shaping of the weave. The next 2 sandings with 120 then 220 grit finishes the smoothing and polishing. They are finished with Clear Danish Oil to seal the piece, bringing out the grain and the color.
