    John,

    I split it on the right and left on what I call the arms of the cross.
    Did give some thought about down the middle of the cross. Then
    you have a long steam and a lot more movement in the carving to match.

    It is lest length on the arms to join and a short seam in any thing is better.
    It is like in stalling a counter top in granite or Quartz stone that we do. W never run a 45 degree
    seam we run the 25 to 26 " top depth. You do see 45 run in Post Form Laminate and that is do to the make up of that material very low end.

    I am now working on a glu up jig for the big crosses so I can get my bisque joins cut and dry fit,
    then apply glue and line up the arms and pull them to the body of the cross at the same time.
    Happy Carving

    Great job, I like the way you split into three. I did one a while back that size with the seam in the middle. I wasn't able to stain it as I would have liked.
    Here is one I just did that is 4' x 6'.

    Thank you. It seems I really get more out of the freebees than the paid jobs.
