The kneelers I am making for our parish are constructed with large mortise and tenon then connected with counter-bored lags and glue to create the strongest joint against the constant use wear-and-tear. Appliques cover the lag bores and add the 3rd dimension to the pieces. Tedious but worth the effort. I will be finishing a riser kneeler this week that reveals a peculiar function per recent direction from our Diocese. Thanks for looking and happy holidays.

Beautiful! At first I thought you made these out of an old Communion rail. But you didn’t! (Thank goodness)

More beautiful work for the parish. Looks like it should hold up well to years of use.
