Supplies you will need
- a piece of wood (around 3" x 5" x 1" thick)
- a piece of string (preferably leather lacing)
- a band saw (or coping saw, or hand saw)
- a drill
- (optionally) a sander
Step 2: Cut out the cross
If you don't have a band saw, no worries: the cuts are straight, so you can use a hand saw, a coping saw, a hack saw, a sawz-all, or just about any saw (though a rotary saw will be difficult).
Step 3: Sand the cross
If you want to finish the cross really nicely, start with a rough grit sandpaper (like 60 or 100). Once you can't do anything more with that grit, move up to a finer grit (150 or 200) and then finer and finer until you're satisfied with the smoothness. I only went up to 150 grit.
