  2. New Wave Gothic Memorial Credence (Communion) Table

    Religious and fraternal furniture always takes on a special meaning; these pieces accept the persona of ceremony and participate in religious occasions from regular services to weddings, to funerals to holidays. Religious piece lasts for generations, not just a few functional years in a home, so...
  3. Church Steeple

    I really do not know if there is a story behind this steeple. I did one church project for a friend and then it steamed rolled from there. This was my third steeple, so I got a little fancy with it.
  4. Prayer kneeler a gift for my Mother in Law

    I have been asked in the past to build one of these prie dieu, or kneeler to me. Some reason it has never gotten in the rotation of projects. This year I decided to build it for my mother in laws birthday. Every Sunday I would measure rather by shoe method, or hand measure lengths and heights...

  8. Bill Rack, or "Budget Balancer"

    This is my entry into the "scrap it out" contest. It's a rack to hold bills or other mail with 5 stepped slots so I can see the due dates, which I have a habit of writing on the outside of the envelope so I won't forget (hence the "balanced budget"). It's a block of hickory made from a 3×3/4"...
  9. Pulpit

    This pulpit was a result of some past work. This pastor saw a steeple I made which looked like the Ark of the Covenant from the Old Testement. He asked me to design and build a pulpit for his new church.
  10. sacrament table for a church

    One of the most rewarding jobs was to build the pulpit, chairs, and table for this church. I also build their bathroom and kitchen cabinets and steeple. Our work is rewarded by more work.
