Arts and Crafts style prie dieu built for the Assistant Rector at Saint Bede’s Episcopal Church, Tucker, Georgia.
 

Made of California Black Oak and Hackberry. Finish is a good soaking in red wine (yes, red wine); a dark walnut glaze; topped off with three coats of shellac.
 

Constructed over a seven-week period … about 150 hours!
 

View on YouTube a slide show chronicling this build.

Thanks for the comments, guys. This was a lot of fun to build and the experiment with the red wine paid off … in my opinion!

I’m trying my hand at uploading video to YouTube … thought I would test things out with a slide show chronicling this build … Click HERE ... all comments are welcome!

I have been asked to upload video of my Hand Cranked Drill Press in action. Should have that up soon.
