Claro Walnut Cross with Carved Grapes (AB17)
Claro Walnut is considered the premium of all the Walnut varieties for it marbling of colors. Our crosses are carved from this prized wood. Claro Walnut is also an exceptional and unique wood for luthiers to use in building guitars and ukuleles. We reclaimed the Claro Walnut in your cross from orchard trees that have become unproductive in the San Joaquin Valley. When a tree is removed they are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable wood. All of our crosses are hand sanded to 2000 grit creating the fine surface for finishing. We apply multi coats of food grade walnut oil by hand to bring out the natural beauty and luster of this wood. Up to 50 coats of French polish finish is then applied to protect your cross. The final step is buffing with Gilboy’s beeswax imported from England.
We hope this cross brings many blessings to you and your family. We thank you for allowing one of our handmade crosses into a place of honor in your home.
This cross is 10 1/2 inches high and 6 inches wide with our carved grapes.
