Welcome to my site of hand sculpted wooden crosses and other shapes, made to your design choice or bespoke to your own ideas.
Please be aware that every cross I sell helps to support 3 “COMPASSION” children.
A special I have done for EASTER last year is a Montage of 3 crosses in Oak which if made in the large size – 2 metres high + could be set (installed) on either a temporary or permanent basis in a Church yard. Or made small could grace a stand or mantlepiece within the home. Shown below are the prices and suggested sizes of such a project.
As shown none of the crosses would be vertical nor would they be in line – the effect of breaking with a ‘FORMAL’ setting is that they ‘catch’ the eye very effectively – we are used to seeing most things even in the art world as being ‘horizontal’ and ‘vertical’ and with piece I have deliberately chosen to break the rules – the result is dramatic – as was the life of Christ
Made in Pine £500 price includes installation (provided the situation is normal soil and NOT concrete) but not delivery.

This is Holy Trinity church Knaresborough where they bought a very large “3 on a Hill” about three years ago – maybe something for other churches to consider.
My smallest crosses are about 5 cm high, the largest over 2 metres, and anything in between.
I offer individually commissioned work, and supply Retreat Houses, Christian Book shops, and Church shops across the UK and Junior Schools, as well as many private customers.
I first started doing these 20+ years ago – having been a woodworker all my life, but never all that interested in joinery or cabinet making, I wanted to make crosses but didn’t want to have to tangle with joint – though necessary, I find then tedious.
Having always been fascinated by the incarnation ‘God made man’- experiencing Jesus in our everyday life and our understanding of the cross, I wanted to portray the cross in a way in which it wasn’t normally seen, and in which it would speak to people in a way in which the ‘standard’ cross didn’t.
After a lot of thinking and experimenting, I adapted to using my bandsaw, and with some trial and error came up with my present ‘style’.
*Please note that up until this year I had only supplied the UK market, but I have now supplied a Benedictine Abbey in NSW Australia. I thought this would be quite difficult because of Customs, but the package went through without any problems.
