this is a Catholic Lecturn I designed and built for a church my Greatgrandfather built in 1906.

I designed to fit into the old Renisance architecture .

HOLY CHIT!

That’s really nice work, did you do it all old school or is it CNC work?

Agree with the rest, beautiful skillful work.

I am a retired Methodist Pastor. I wish I had one half as nice when I was preaching. Beautiful work.
