Our latest addition to the growing furniture additions in our parish. The Ambry houses our sacred oils. You can see the other completed projects in the background all new this year. It’s been busy to say the least but for the need of a full-time career punching keyboard and clicking mouse! I might have been completed with the project! :) with shop-made forms, it took a little time to bend the panels sufficiently to achieve the arch needed. The door is finger joint which worked very well in this project. The back panel is recessed to accommodate the light plug and an outlet that could only be fastened to the marble column face so approx. 4” recess.

Wonderfull… How did you bend the wood on the sides? Is it solid stock or plywood?

Wow…very nice work! Anything with curves always catches my attention because it is not the norm. Your craftsmanship reflects a significant amount of time racked up in this one. Great job!

I would love to build something like this, but have never bent wood. What is the process for doing this and how thin should the wood be? I would like to use walnut but I can use oak if it’s better suited for bending. And would you be able to provide any diagrams or cut lists for this project? Beautiful Ambry. Thanks!
