These were the 1st & 2nd projects I did for my church (“Celtic Cross” being the 3rd & “Hammer Beams” being 4th). The pulpit was delivered Easter Sunday 2006 & the communion table about 90 days later. Both are made of red oak & red oak ply. The leading edge molding is 1/4” above countertop to accomodate glass & the pulpit has a piano hinged top. I did some preliminary research to get a historical/traditional feel while still making it my own design. Apart from any self design which can at times prove challenging… the biggest challenge on the pulpit was that my two pastors are 5’6” & 6’2” respectively. Needless to say… the wings and depth of the unit allow both of them to “fit” the piece when preaching.
Hope you enjoy.
