  1. Church - Intarsia

    This intarsia piece is the white country church with steeple. The church is 19½" x 16" and has 70 pieces. Wood is Western Red Cedar and aspen and is finished with Old Masters Clear Finish gel varnish. I used a wood burner on the steeple and the horizontal lines on the church building. I made a...
  2. Curly Maple and Walnut cross

    Our pastor asked me to build a cross after seeing my iPad stand. He wanted the same woods so this is Curly Maple and Walnut and the overall height is 9'. The rock is all wood and weighs 70 pounds. The cross has a monocoque frame with bulkheads, similar to an airplane fuselage or wing or even...
  3. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  4. Faith Art: New Frames for the Stations of the Cross at Marion's St. Mark Catholic Church

    Photo 1: Chasing After the Wind: Whew. What a morning. It is windy a lot of the time in Kansas, and out on the open prairie where I live, it is almost always windy. But, when the weather forecast is for "windy", you know it is going to be terrible, and it is today. "Blustery," they call it...
  5. Bible Box

    I made this for a friend to give as a Christmas gift. Made from locally sourced oak and maple. Star of David was hand cut on a scroll saw. The idea for the box came from a project I saw from Wayne's Woodenware. Thanks for looking.
  6. Church Doors

    Built some new doors for a church. Made from African mahogany with a cabernet stain and spar urethane on top. Had to replace the trim around the outside of the door too. Used the same hardware just cleaned it up with a wire wheel. Damage was done by a drunk driver. It was a bit of a challenge...
  7. Baptism Fount

    These are Baptismal Founts designed by my mom. These will be placed in her church and are used for dipping a persons finger in holy water, which will be in the shell, and then making the mark of the cross on one's forehead. I wish I could take credit for carving the Jesus figurines, but they...
  8. Bishop

    I'll change my favorite subject a little. A small figure of a Catholic Bishop
  9. Processional Church Cross

    Commissioned by my church, this project was, as most are, far more than I bargained for. A lot of that is on me. They had a simple processional cross that had been in use for decades, and was not built all that professionally to begin with. It functioned, but was nothing special. I was honored...
  10. Church Suggestion Box

    This was a quick project I built this week, commissioned by my grandparents for their small church. It's made from 1/2"x6 Oak, and the cross is made from Black Walnut. The lock and hinges are stock from Lowe's, and the sign holder is a modified (cut-off) brass index/door card holder I found at...
  11. Church Logo Carving

    I made this piece with our church logo, a tree that has a cross in it. I printed out the logo, glued/taped it to the wood. I then cut out the logo on the scroll saw. Then I took my Dremel tool and carved around the tree to give a 3D effect. The carving was a gift to our pastor during pastor...
  12. Movable oak pulpit

    I was asked by an employee of our local nursing home where I volunteer to design and build a pulpit to replace one that had been built many years earlier out of paneling and plywood. They wanted something of a similar size and function to the old one so I based my design roughly on its...
  13. Wedding Heart Plaque

    Made this for a friend/customer to give as a gift for her daughters wedding. Pattern from Sue Mey, Scroll Saw Artist, Wedding Heart #2. Great pattern, great service, great website with a huge selection. I cut it on my RBI Hawk and Excalibur scroll saws using #7, #5, and #2 blades. Made from...
  14. 8' Wooden Cross back lite

    Cross is eight feet tall and four feet wide. Mounted on exterior gable of church. Constructed out of Meranti marine plywood. Epoxy fillets to hold ribs in place. Ribs drilled to accept led rope lighting for back light. Finish with epoxy clear coat and 2 coats of captains spar varnish.
  15. Circular Church Pulpit

    Our church pastor asked me if I could build him an open pulpit because he wants to be seen instead of hidden by the traditional boxy pulpit. After some research I came across this one design that he and the trustees like. The arcs of the circular top and bottom are not concentric which makes...
  16. Quick build for my feathered friends

    It is still annoying that I had to edit every photo to get them to post in the correct orientation. And am posting them from my phone, harder than from a PC. I used all the tips volume buttons down etc etc. this is a huge annoyance here. Plans are from...
  17. Kids Worship Pulpit, Alter and Font.

    I am good friends with one of the pastors at our church (golf buddies) and he commissioned me to help with a brainchild project of his. He wanted to give the preschool and young Sunday School classes something to learn about worship with. We made replicas of the Pulpit, Font and Alter that are...
  18. Display Stand

    I normally carve, usually my own designs, or unusual (interesting) "other" designs (modified) that inspire me. However, my Pastor requested that I come up with a way of creating a Christmas tree "display" for Poinsettias that could could be used for a Christmas sermon. He left it up to me, but...
  19. Celtic Cross

    All- After admiring much of y'alls work for the last few months I finally broke down and created a profile to share some of my own. Here's my first. I made this cross for my church and delivered it on Easter Sunday 2007. It is the 3rd of five donated projects that took place between...
  20. Intarsia Church Emblem

    Presentation by David Morris First Baptist Church of West Hartford January 20, 2013 Our scripture this morning is found in Genesis 6 verses 13 through 22. But before I read the scripture I want to begin to tell you a story. In order for the story to make sense there's a few things you need to...
