This North American hardwood is found in much of Central and Eastern USA and Canada.  This wood is a favorite as so many folks have used or purchased items made from Black Walnut.  It is smooth to hold.

Considered a favorite for furniture makers, Black Walnut has a rich dark brown color with occasional graining running in the wood.  The sapwood is a light straw color and is usually not used commercially but makes a beautiful contrast in HoldingCrosses with the darker heartwood.

Notice the three Black Walnut HoldingCrosses pictured.  You can see the variety of graining and color variation. Most black walnut furniture is stained to make it look uniform.  We think God had it right in the first place!

As with all of our crosses, there were no stains, lacquers or preservatives used to finish your cross; only a natural oil which is hand-rubbed and polished to enhance the woods natural beauty.  When you hold our crosses, you are “feeling” the wood and “seeing” the wood as God created it.  No two are alike as boards will vary in color and graining due the environmental conditions it was produced.  The shine on the cross is related to the amount of “resin” in the make-up of the wood itself.  The more resin the higher the shine.

Crosses are handcrafted in our Palestine, Texas (USA) facility offering the highest quality.  Crosses do not require polishing.  Holding your cross will allow the oils from your hands to go into the wood and create a soft, patina glow.  Never use oil or olive oil on our crosses.

Price noted is for 1 HoldingCross The picture of multiple crosses is to share with you the diversity of the wood.

Each cross comes in an organza bag with a StoryTag telling the name of the wood and a StoryScroll which contains suggested prayers, CareGiving stories and other information.  We do not offer seconds or damaged crosses.  Our crosses are all first quality and handcrafted in our shop by our family.

NOTE : The HoldingCross watermark in the picture does not appear on the crosses.  The picture is marked for proprietary reasons.

    This is by far my most favorite cross. Only problem is I keep giving it away. Good thing I know where to get another one! Thank you.
