Wooden Cross Memorials & Oak Crosses

Wooden cross painted white with lettering lasered.

Wooden crosses hand made in Oak, Iroko, Opepe or Painted Sapele

We make our wooden crosses in six sizes. Normally oak is used but they could be make in different woods - iroko, opepe or painted sapele.

The lettering can be engraved directly into the wood or you can mount an engraved plaque onto the cross. The Oak is normally finished using our long lasting satin varnish wheras Iroko and Opepe are finished with Devon Oil.

The hardwood - Sapele is painted using tough two pack paints before the lettering is lasered and oiled. White is usually the colour chosen but other colors can be used.

We can supply with a square end for wall mounting or a stake end for ground fixing. Another option is to add a stainless steel bar which holds the wooden cross just above the ground surface - see below.
