I love my church that my family and I go to, the pastor there is a super great guy. I do tithe every Sunday, but I really don’t make a whole lot of money, cant seem to get many sales these days. So I was sitting around the shop one day just brain storming some ideas, and then it hit me. I will use my God given talents for the church. I had did some trade out work with my saw mill buddy for the extra wood and had some liquid glass left from a past project. So I decided to make a really cool prayer bench for the church. I had some turquoise left from a table project too, this bench turned out better then I thought. I had my wife burn a scripture in the middle of the bench between the two crosses I carved in on the ends. I used my router free hand to make the groves and inlay the turquoise in it. The pastor has no idea what I just made for the church and can’t wait to see the reaction. Enjoy every one and God bless.

That is really beautiful Todd.

Thanks for showing,
