This wooden cross is made from teak wood salvaged from the Port Bailey Cannery, on Kodiak Island Alaska. The cannery had in earlier years a Boat Wright Shop which has long become part of the sea but we constantly find teak scraps in the cannery building and beach around the area where boats were built.
The measurements vary a bit but they are approximately:
7 1/2 " x 4" x 1/2" thick
Teak is traditionally used in the making of fishing boats due to its strength, durability, resistance to termites & fungi. It is believed that the teak used to make these crosses is well over 40 years old. The cross was not stained, it was hand rubbed with natural Danish oil.
