Project Story:

For those of you that have followed the detail blogging of this project, there is no new information here, only better photos with the Hymn Number Board in place at the church. Having a great diffused light source, and a clean backdrop does wonders for a cheap digital camera. And adding some gorgeous stained glass windows sure helped my work look better than the photos I took in my messy shop.

I delivered this project last Saturday, and it went into service at the church on Sunday morning the 6th of August.

I thought that this was the last project for the church, but when I delivered the Hymn Number Board, Father Nick said that he would like to have me build a decorative Baptismal Font to hold the Holy Water when they are doing baptisms. He said that the church can’t do it right away, as they are paying for all of the work that has been done this year now, but he said that as soon as they could, they will have me do the work. I couldn’t have been more thrilled, and hope that it comes to pass.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see the old Podium that was previously used before I delivered the new Lectern. It is now being used as a Guest Book Stand in the Foyer. I am sensitive about replacing other people’s woodworking projects, even if they are from a long time ago, and nobody remembers the history of them, or it’s maker. Someone worked hard on it, and did the best they could, and I appreciate that. I was happy to see the old Podium finding this new service, and that it was not stored, forgotten, or discarded.

I posted a lot of other photos for you below, just in the case you are interested in seeing more.

Here is the old Podium that was moved to another service in the church. It is now a Guest Book Holder.

Here is a photo showing the current Holy Water Stand. I am envisioning a new one in wood, octagonal in shape, with a large turned dome lid, with 4 of the 8 sides carved and gold-powdered painted. I’m hoping I do indeed get the chance to build a new Baptismal Font.

I would love to get the chance to build more church and faith-art related original pieces. Please consider me for your church furnishing project.

Thanks for checking this project out. I still have two more projects on this commission to “post,” hopefully I will get them loaded up soon.

I can’t imagine the feeling of walking into this church, looking up at the front and thinking “I built that”.... I get shivers just thinking about it.
