Project Information

I have been working on this project since June for the rural church I belong to. I wrapped it up today with putting on the crown molding and installing the slide-outs. The cabinets are all oak, with a dark stain. Raised panel doors. Lacquer sprayed on. I also made the counter top and backsplash with WilsonArt HD laminate. The whole job turned out pretty well, and I'm happy with it. I think the parishioners are happy too, for the most part. Not everyone is, but I guess you can't always please everyone…

Below shows the roll out that the priest can hang his vestments on. It has a closet rod (not visible) underneath.



This is the other big cabinet on the right side. It is for the ladies to store their altar cloths, banners, etc. It also has roll outs with closet rods. The roll outs have trays on the top, so they can store stuff on there too.





I'm ready to something a little more unique and fun now - this was a good project, but it was big and a lot of run of the mill stuff. I'm happy I could help out my church though!

Nice job, and Boy-oh-boy do I hear you about "Church Committees"

Several years ago we were with a church that was going thru a major renovation. It took a committee of 6 women about 5 months to decide on the wall colors (there was paint chips and swatches of painted areas all OVER the place), and it took them over 4 months to decide on a color for the carpeting !

A very nice job. Your pullout with the hanger rod beneath is a very clever idea. Additionally, your craftsmanship will grace your church for many, many years. I sincerely hope none of the nay sayers diminish from the joy you must feel for scope and quality of your accomplishment.

Well done, Pete. Fine cabinetry no easy feat anywhere.! Nice details for the Priest and secretary and Groups. I hope the compliments keep coming in as this is used. Also looks like who would not want to work there ?
I am the Pastors spouse. Please see my site and shop In our past church I had to match shelves and molding in the Pastor office and they had used regular screen molding..3 ridges.. on office shelves. I cringed as I matched it when flat edged wood is so easy and looks great. Screen molding? Maybe I should have done what you did.

^ Well, my car parked outside all summer long until last week, and sometimes the wife's vehicle too when I was doing finishing. So, I'll be glad to scale down the size of next project ;-)

It was necessary to add a rose.
