New Bid Submitted
This morning I sent out my bid for a commissioned job to build two side altars for a church, matching the old original center altar. After spending so much time estimating and pondering if I left anything out, or put too much in the bid, I am glad I have finally made the decision, typed it up, and sent it out. This project will involve some pretty complicated woodworking, the type of challenge that I like. The church board will review the bids this weekend, and I should know soon whether this is a project for me, or not. I was reading through George Nakashima’s book, and was amazed at how many churches of several faiths used his architectural work and his furniture work. I have only worked for one church at this point, and I hope to make two soon. I posted photos of the complicated woodworking tasks in the Forum in the Skill Share topic list if you are interested in looking at the task, or giving me tips on how to accomplish the work.

thanks,
Mark
