This is a easy, fun cross to make for family and friends.
Step 1: Finding the Size of Cross You'd Like
Find a 1/8in piece of plywood to fit your dimensions.
Then draw it out to the size desired
Then cut out with a skill saw or jig saw.
Step 2: Cut and Organize 2x4s to Fit As Desired
Take a couple 6' 2x4s then cut them down to sizes to fit on your cross.
Step 3: Putting the Puzzle Together
This does not need to all fit perfectly
Step 4: Group All the Pieces
Pick pieces off the cross, then group them so the same colors aren't next to the same color.
Step 5: Paint the Pieces and Cross
Paint the pieces different colors so they don't match
Paint the cross to a color you prefer
Step 6: Re-putting the Puzzle Together and Glue
Put the puzzle back together
if you happen to glue the same color pieces together then you can take on of them and paint it a different color only if necessary
User tipical wood glue to attach to plywood base and wait 2-4 hours
Step 7: Roughing It
take a disc sander with 120 grit
sand around the edges and give it a weathered look
Step 8: Clear Coat
