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)

^^Now I’m curious!

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

I’m very impressed. At first I was distracted with the appearance however as I read the comments, and took a second look I immediately realized what I was looking at, and thought wow! Your attention to detail, and choice of materials have resulted in a beautiful kneeler.
