We finished this project a few years ago and I finally made a video about it. The cross stands 9' tall and weighs 35 lbs., the faux rock base weighs 70 lbs. Seems like many of my projects involve Curly Maple and Walnut, maybe because the woods are so gorgeous. Building the faux rock was something new for me but it came out looking like a rock so I can't ask for much more than that.

That is a beautiful contrast between the two woods. I had a friend in high school who wound up making things like rock facades for theme parks, and sets for film and theater. It's definitely an art.
Thanks, Tom! You just about can't go wrong with that combination of woods.
Gorgeous piece with a ton of creative woodworking engineering. I am always so impressed with your precision.
Thanks, Oscar! The precision part of it is one of the areas I find truly rewarding.
