From my blog:

Some time ago I posted three videos on the design and build of a prayer kneeler. We donated the kneeler to the local church where our daughter is a parishioner, to help raise funds for their little school in a Silent Auction.

Due to last-minute events, I completely forgot to document the finished piece, as I delivered it to the fund raiser committee just days before the auction. But, as luck would have it, the highest bidder lives less than 10 minutes away from us. Since the lady is a friend of our daughter, I requested she let the winner know I was interested in taking photos of the finished piece, in her own home. She graciously agreed!

So, finally, I can share with you the prayer kneeler in its final location. We purchased the fabric for the kneeling pad during one of treks through the Far East; Sandy made the pad in such a way that, if need be, it could be easily detached and replaced by the lucky high bidder at the Silent Auction. This was not required, as the lady loved it:

Very clever design with the fold up kneeler! Looks like I need to make one of these so that I can pray over my latest project…

tim, Ned, and Tony,
Thanks! This was a wonderful and different project. I have several clients who really like them, and pick and choose different options such as onlays, crosses, etc.

Thanks! I am certain your latest project WILL be just fine. lol I laughed at your comment… ;-)
