This was a fun build. Commissioned to build a nativity stable that is easy to assemble and stores flat. Made of reclaimed wood from an Episcopal churches wood shop that closed. Solid oak edge banding on oak veneer plywood. Rails, windows and roof supports from solid oak flooring and cope moulding. Finished in golden oak stain with 3 coats of satin polyurethane. Dimensions 24”W x 15”D x 18”H

Dan, it brings back memories when I was a kid, there always was a nativity under the tree. Nice job that it breaks down, ours didn’t and it would get some damage occasionally. I like the reclaimed wood from the church. Nice work.
I got the tables done, just need to attach the legs.

Thank you Grizz01, tis the season.

Thank you BB1, just trying to figure out what to put it in. Sure I could make a wood box (haha)
Thanks Chad!

Dave (doubleDD), that’s exactly why she needed a replacement, the old one was one piece of similar size and it just got so beat up. Had some fun figuring out the design and the angles for the pitched roof (22.5 degrees)

The church is actually in the same town where she lives, although she was not a member she absolutely loves the connection. Can’t wait to see your finished tables!
