I was asked to re-build the creche for my local church. I made this from cedar. Instead of using the cedars of Lebanon, these are the cedars of Menards… :-) I hope it will be a worthy place for the Holy Family to reside this coming Christmas. There is an LED puck light to illuminate the scene. The last photo is the creche built with ugly paneling that I am replacing.

Thanks Gr8.
The base is approximately 16”x32”, about 4.5” roof overhang on the sides, and about 20” to the peak of the roof.

Nice job. Cedar will keep the weight down too. Thanks for including a picture of the lighting, that’s a nice touch.

Thanks for the compliment, Richard. It’s really nice seeing it set up at church each Christmas season.
