These beautiful and intricate large crosses would look great in your home and would also make great gifts or craft fair sale items. Even though they are larger, the overlay is made from a thinner wood, so you are still able to stack cut making it easier for you to produce them efficiently for selling. You can choose make these crosses with a dark natural backer (walnut was used in the example) and a lighter overlay wood, or you could instead choose to paint or stain a plywood backer piece. You could even choose to frame it some other way such as with an oval backer or even a store-bought picture frame. Whatever method you choose, be sure to use a strong, tight-grained wood for the overlay since these pieces are fairly delicate.
This is an intermediate to advanced scroll saw pattern.
