A friend wanted to donate a special item to his Synagogue. – A chair or stand upon which the Torah would be held during services when not in the Ark. The design for this item is my own. It is based on the Jewish Star of David and picks up on the six sided chandeliers in the Synagogue. It is constructed entirely of solid cherry. The points of the stars are joined with number 20 biscuits. The “V’s” that make the points are joined with half lap joints. The legs are joined with dowels for the three short legs. The longer legs that extend to the top of the curved back are dadoed into the three points of the star. Finish is with several coats of dark orange shelac protected witih spar varnish.
Sorry but I didn’t take any pictures of it during construction.
