This is a pulpit that I made for a new construction Church. It is 6 feet wide and 2 feet deep. It is called Colonial Style. It is constructed out of MDF and Oak. This was the first major project that I made in my shop.

Thanks for looking,
John

This is a very good project. I see you are still producing quality work.

Its a little difficult to see the details in the pictures but I am sure that they are just fine.

Thanks for the post.

You did a great job on it! As a preacher and woodworker, I’d prefer to get behind a Solid wood pulpit. But hey, that’s just me. ;o)

Thank you all for your very kind comments. I made this for a very special friend, a man that was always there for us when we needed him. I made a matching communion table but I cannot find the pictures of it. Thanks again for your very kind comments.

Great looking work John.
Lots of detail.
Where does one come up with plans for a pulpit?

Greg,

I searched the internet for designs and then combined ideas and built it.

Thanks!
