I’ve been asked to build a new cross for a local church, aprox. 3′ wide by 5′ tall and 5 inchs thick. It will sit about 40 ft, in the air on the peak of the roof. Subject to New England weather. I’m thinking, 3/4″ MDO plywood build up, stainless screws and a high grade yellow glue. Maybe cap with copper flash to keep the water off. Any ideas on something more durable?
