Waiting to be inspired by spiritual gifts from above I began again to finish the Altar I am donating in the name of my parents . Both died one month apart recently. The suppressing anxiety of my loss dictated I depart from woodworking for awhile . I built a five acre lake on my ranch sitting on a bulldozer for two months grinding my feelings into submission. I have now embarked totally with the help of the holy spirit to finish the Altar. I proceeded assembling the third and final layer of the curved Gothic arches.
To my amazement spiritual or divine intervention a great horned owl came and stayed with me for six days never being scared or aggressive to me. I took the curved pieces and doweled them together for one large section that we overlaid and glued and nailed to the bottom 3/4 ’’ Gothic arches.
We assembled the front section to the side panels and have our first look at the Altar standing up. We have built the top and have to build a small box under the Altar to hold the Saints relics and wait for the front trim a CNN router to finish making the trim to our sizes based on two inch increments. The next post will be the installed trim to finalize the total construction. Then we paint and antique the finsih with a transparent stain to match the other elements of the church.
All this and Heaven too.
