This was a long term project that began when I was contacted by the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary who told me of their desire to have a piece of furniture built to hold this Torah Scroll.
This case on stand now resides in the William Perkins Library. The scroll sits in side a removable case. The case is made from Walnut veneer. The base is made from Mahogany with brass detailing.

For a full description of how the project developed and detailed pictures see this link:
