Everybody gets a chance to learn something new and for me this project was one of them. I’ve done architectural work in the past but nothing quite on this scale and never before did I have to climb onto scaffolding to complete a job.
This project was completed December 2013 (excepting the organ console which was installed later) and was a collaboration between Remmert Studios, Altare Design, Allen Organ Company and a local electric contractor.
The organ itself is a digital/pipe combination so there were 12 speakers to place and they all needed to be unobtrusive. A couple of the photos show the placement of the largest speakers. Two small speakers were set in the far left and right cabinets and one under each of the angel statues.
The casework itself is mostly walnut plywood with some air-dried walnut sourced from a local sawyer. One of the pictures in the gallery was taken at the shop shortly before delivery day. Everything was built in parts, pre-assembled in the shop, then taken back apart for transport.
Looking at the pictures, what do you suppose one of the biggest challenges might have been? Anyone who can guess gets a bozo button and a pat on the back.
