Picture of two tone, three dimensional wooden puzzle

We've had this puzzle for ages and I can't find a solution anywhere. I have vague memories of it being a cross but can't be sure.

I've searched everywhere online and in the house for a solution, can anyone help?

    $\begingroup$ Can you provide a scaleable, 3D, user-friendly, javascript applet that provides us with an interactive GUI so that we may rotate/move each piece with reckless abandon? $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Apr 1 '18 at 15:26
