For several months during 2007, I had the privilege of building several pieces of commissioned furniture for the St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Strong City, KS. This church is part of the Wichita, KS Diocese. I finished up all of my work this summer, and have blogged, and added those projects as postings before. At the end of this blog, I will give a summary list of the items if you are interested in seeing the pieces I built. Also, I wanted to share the photos of the Sep...
This week, I’ve been finishing up the Hymn Number Board for the St. Anthony Catholic church in Strong City, KS.

This is my Original Design, and it looks nothing like anything I have seen before, although it has design elements of things I have built in the past. I built it to match the other furnishings of the St. Anthony chu...
I had a nice weekend. Saturday I worked with a local cabinet maker helping him catch up on his schedule. We are nearly finished with the 3rd kitchen cabinet job, and then he will be caught up.

Today, Monday, I took photos of what I have accomplished on my Hymn Number Board that I am building for the St. Anthony Church in Strong City, KS. On one hand, it seems like I made a lot of progress since my last blog late last week, but when I look back over the photos tonight, I can see that the number of hours it takes me to do this tedious work is mounting. I started the project with the previous blog: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/1508 Also, since I had enough in...
I am so excited this morning. Why you ask? I’m complete with the St. Anthony Church Side Altar commission project. I have more work to do on other pieces for the church by the end of the month. So, there isn’t much time to take a breath yet, but the completion of the Side Altars is a huge milestone for me, and my woodworking career. To be honest, there were some times that I wondered if I would ever get all of the details of these Altars complete. Total working time is a...
