I ran across a sawmill one day in my driving around and I stopped to talk to the owner. I took him a couple of handmade pens and asked him to keep his eyes out for any strange or unique woods. I would stop by and see him every few days and shoot the breeze. In the back of my mind was a thought about how could I suggest that I make something for him in trade for lumber.
But before I had the opportunity to suggest it, he said could you make a puplit. I assured him that I could. And, then he suggested that maybe we could trade lumber for completed work. No problem!
I talked to the pastor about what he would desire. He said something simple. I came up with a plan and emailed to him and he said great.
So this is the pulpit that I created. It will be used at the Fish Locker Cafe. They have a community outreach to the youth of the town and quite often have bands come in to entertain with “Praise and Worship”
I ran across a piece of spalted maple and I made the cross out of it and told the Pastor that the cross represented “The sunlight glinting across the empty cross of the Risen Savior”.
The top is Waterfall Bubinga Veneer.
Part of my lumber trade was 6 boards of Cherry 16 to 20 in wide and 11 feet long, all probably graded #1.
