Once again I was selected and asked to construct 2 more Tabernacles for use in Europe. One is going to an Arch Bishop family friend in Rome Italy and the second will be given to an aquaintence in Croatia, the home country of the family that asked me to build them.
These two were made from cherry and again using nearly every tool in my wood shop. I am thankful for having an Incra jig on my router table along with the incra router lift. With a project like this they sure made life easier in that a few thousandths clearance were need on all of the finger joints to allow assembly and dis-assembly without difficulty.
The door is hinged at the top and bottom using the 1/8” brass pins attached to all of the 1” balls. All four corners, top and bottom are drilled to accept the 2” brass pin in the same manner so that they are all interchangeable.
The finish is a water base polyeurathane, 5 coats and sanded with 400 grit between each coat.

The precision you have shown on projects makes me jealous. Second orders really show what a good job you do. Now I know why we have,t talked in a few days.

Very nice precise and exacting work. Great attention to detail. That natural cherry is beautitul, and will only get more so with age.

They look great Dick. Considering what they are designed to hold, I’d say you have been extended a HUGE privilege. Congratulations my friend.
