Project Information

I was asked by a friend if I would help him build his pulpit for the new church they were constructing. And this is what we came up with. The top and bottom are made out of Baltic Birch Plywood, finished with Dark Cherry Stain and Clear poly. The columns and the Bun Feet were purchased for this project by my friend to make life easier on me. :) He had the glass insert made at a local glass shop. The cords for the mic and the lights are run through one of the columns to give it a clean look.

Thanks for looking,
John

Wow, what a great looking pulpit. The columns work the ones behind. The accent lighting works well. Hiding the cords was a great as that would have taken away from the over all look. Love the etched/painted glass. I just noticed the matching side table. Great job.

That would easily be the one distraction from hearing the sermon. Truly amazing work.

That is very interesting. I'm curious, did you ever discuss the design with the minister?

Kerux,

Yes, we discussed it over a cheeseburger at Culvers, drew it up on a napkin, and the rest as they say is history. The Pastor and I are good friends.

Thanks!
John

I am out of town on vacation. When I get back I will ask him where he ordered them from and how much they set him back.

Thanks
John
