"cross grain glue - ups are problematic."

Trees/wood doesn't stop moving after it's dead.

That's an entirely different issue.
Ingress and egress of moisture is a given.

But .. Butt joining wood is a no no and creates serious problems.

First off, I haven’t butt joined anything. My cross is made with a half lap joint. All the other pieces are glued to two sides.

Humidity constant where it will end up.

I have a relief, wood carved, sculpture I did 43 yrs ago, in college. Done by gluing up squares of several different spices of wood. Then, gouges and mallet. It separates and goes back together often. Doesn’t bother me, and it’s never fallen apart.

Ryder it should be fine for your intended purpose... some people are cantankerous by nature.

I know SS2.

It’s sculpture...not going to be anyone sitting on it. I’m after the final form, but I start with a good foundation. Same as doing a painting. If you don’t have a good drawing, there’s not a lot paint can do to make it better.

Thank you all though for the comments and advice.

It’s going to be “in the round”, so to speak. Not a relief carving.

I was going to recommend that, good you had done that. It's still half a butt : ).

Well, half a butt is better than no butt! ;-)
