« Part 3: Finishing all the required models and templates Part 4 of Building Two Baptismal Fonts series no next part

I got out of my blogging groove on these project. Due mainly to a heavy travel schedule, it’s taken me long time to get them both done. I finished the first one about 4 weeks ago and an have the second just about done. So, instead of a step by step, I’ll post some pictures from the along the way, and then I’ll post them as projects at some point.

They are similar designs, as you can clearly see, but with some important differences

The first font is QSWO, the bowl has a large lip on it, and the legs are curved. The second is made from Jatoba and is designed to fit with existing pieces with flared legs. The bowl on this one is more conventional in shape.

Wow, those are gorgeous! I especially like the curved legs on the first one. Great work, Charles!

Great joinery! I really like the first one.

Liking the first one is the right answer! That is my more original design. The second one is designed to fit other pieces, so I was more constrained there. However the Jatoba, a coat or two away from final finish, is gorgeous.

Oh I see …. “sprinkled”, not “dunked”. :-)

Nice job on both, but yeah, I like the first one best.

We actually recommend using a substantial amount of water, not a “moist towelette baptism,” as I refer to them, and sometimes folks are dunked, but that usually happens outside of a sanctuary b/c we don’t have big baptistries.
