With a Christmas gift of $50, I built this Prayer Kneeler (Prie Dieu).
The fold-up kneeler is also a bible box. I used a couple of layers of anti-fatigue mat for cushion covered with suede of a coat from Goodwill. The cross and splines are Purple Heart on Red Oak.
The 8/4 sides are a glue-up to save cost and weight.

Wow, this is great. Yeah, purple heart. Purple is royalty like the one who bore that cross. Nice. Did you do this for you, your church, were you commissioned? Good job anyways!

Hi Rusty,

I’m new here and don’t know how this works, but I would love to make this for myself. Any chance you have plans for it?
