Arts and Crafts style prie dieu built for 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!

Currently working on another one … William and Mary style from Cherry. Turnings using a spring pole lathe.

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!
