That looks great. (and your right, the photo does look a little better taken outside!)
I love how you can look inside, it looks like a ‘real’ little church.

I was looking at the clock earlier. Not right away, but someday, I’ve got to build another on. I want to extend it to maybe long enough to put the same spacing but five windows down the side. I also want to make it about ten inches wider. This would allow me to make a double row of pews so there would be a center aisle, and would leave enough room behind the pulpit for the choir section. What ya’ll think?

You have a God given talent. Rejoice and share your talents when ever you can. Please pass it on to your children. What a wonderful gift you can give them.

Thank you for the ever so nice compliment Dominic, but I don’t think it is talent at all. I truly believe that anyone can build anything that I build. It is all done one cut at a time and is not difficult.
I do teach whatever skills I can to any of my eight kids every chance I get. Even if they never get into it as deep as I, at least they’ll have that knowledge to do things for themselves should the need arise. I also have taught some to other people I meet who want to learn. One of my favorite things in the world is to teach someone wood working, especially the scroll saw.
I do see what I do as a gift though. I’m not talking about a gift as in talent, but a gift to me, for me to be able to have the tools and materials to build the things I do. With my health like it is, wood working is the best therapy I have found.

Good morning William, I was just looking at your buffet and noticed your little church. I checked it out the other day and thought that I left you a comment telling you what a wonderful job I thought you did with it. Don’t know how but I didn’t post a comment. I hope your health improves and you can keep on working at your craft and spreading the love.
