This is a work in progress. I used Utile and Meranti marine plywood to build this. I have over 100 photos of the construction of this one. A lot of photos on Facebook. If you search for “MerryMeeting Millworks” maine you will see all of the project.

those louvres are outstanding. I’d love to know how you executed them. I’ve made smaller versions (cold air return covers) and it was more labor than love;)

If you go to my facebook page. You can see the louver jig I used. I run the 4/4 stock and after mortising for the slats I run through the table saw to finish thickness to give me a mirrored set.

I thought it was appropriate that you used angel irons to secure the steeple… ;)
Great project btw.
