Walnut & Cherry portable communion kit

Hey All,

This was a project born out of a disgust with all the cheapo communion kits that are being sold on the internet these days and they’re actually being billed as solid hardwood, etc…(and the one’s that are really nice are like 300 bucks) Anyway I needed a portable kit to take communion to my members in various nursing homes and the church board told me to go ahead and get one, so this is what they ended up with. Everyone’s pleased and I get a quality portable communion kit. Yes that’s a Stanley flask but it’s stainless steel and 100% leak proof so it was the best thing I could find, even though at first glance this appears to be a drinking kit :) and the bread box for the communion bread I also made. It just slides apart. Everything works great, it’s already been used once with plans to use it many more times in my ministry. The glasses are 1oz shot glasses made from a high grade clear plastic, my thought on using shot glasses was many of the people I take communion to don’t have full use of their hands and the larger the cup, the better. Plus if they do drop it then it’s totally shatter proof.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice. I like the contrast between the lid and the box.

Great job!

thanks eddy,

yeah the lid is pinned in from the sides. i’d been thinking about hinging a box in this way for a while then the idea finally came to me (partly because necessity is the mother of invention, i didn’t have money for hinges) anyway i used the 1” Kreg screws because they only have threading about half way up so the rest of the shank makes a good pivot as it passes through the box side. and it makes it real easy to adjust the tension of the lid. i’ll definitely use this method again down the road.

Nice project .. .. a small point, but I would be a LITTLE worried about that tongue sticking out past the face of the side. I think I would make it flush .. then undercut the bottom to enable getting a finger under it to lift the lid. It SHOULD get very gentle use, so it’s not a major issue, but you never know who/what might bump that little handle and damage it.

Hey good point Fuzzy!
i was also worried about the “tongue” handle but i hadn’t thought of under-cutting a finger notch in the walnut and making the tongue flush. even if i don’t do it to this box, i’ll definitely do that in the next one i make that’s along these line.

thanks,
