I was asked to make a second choir riser for the kids to stand on at church. The original riser was a crude plywood box type riser which was very basic. I told the choir director that I would make new ones for the kids to stand on that can be used out front in the church. The project turned into making matching solid oak tops with plywood aprons and solid oak corner pieces. The tops are tonge and groove to increase durability and to add aesthetic appeal to the end grain. The aprons are simply pocket holed to the corner pieces with an 1/8” reveal. I made a shorter longer step also. All three were a success. The wood is finished with a commercial grade floor glossy finish that is extremely durable.

The two larger boxes are 24” by 24” by 6” tall. The longer one is 40” long by 12” wide by 4” tall.
