I am good friends with one of the pastors at our church (golf buddies) and he commissioned me to help with a brainchild project of his. He wanted to give the preschool and young Sunday School classes something to learn about worship with. We made replicas of the Pulpit, Font and Alter that are in our sanctuary for the kids to use. It was a fast, fun and satisfying project. All just quality oak plywood, Summer Oak Varathane stain and a few coats of Arm-r-Seal. Really happy with how they came out. The only snag was a defect in a the A-side of the plywood we didn’t see when loading, so we ended up using the B-side for a few sections. A little heavier grain pattern, but the quality of the plywood was still solid. Kids are never going to care, but it bugs me a little :)

Nice work! Scaling adult things to kid size can be tricky, and these look great.

I made an altar and lectern for our Sunday School classes several years ago (in my Projects) and it a lot of fun and extremely rewarding.

Thanks mnguy. (I’m MN too, Rochester) It was tricky figuring out just what size and proportions to use. Ultimately it had a little bit too do with what worked best out of the sheets of plywood, but using my daughter who is a small 5 year old was very helpful to sizing and she sure had fun helping!

I second the sentiment about creating things for kids. I think you made these modules really well though! I reckon that you can continue to improve on them by incorporating some bit of storage compartment into the boxes though – help to keep the kids room more tidy!
