This is a church pulpit we made for a church in Kentucky. It is made from solid and veneer East Indian rosewood. The legs are forms on which bendy plywood was attached. Then I used wood filler to make sure the bendy ply was extremely smooth. Then we had to attach veneer to the form using a vacuum press. The top section features many compound angles. There are wires running down inside the legs that enable the church to hook up audio equipment. The book rest features a suede cover to make sure the book doesn’t slide around. A final touch is a nice drink holder for a glass of water.
This was a real challenge to engineer and construct but the results were excellent.
