Hickory Pulpit

I have a friend that is a member of the Single Action Shooter’s Society (S.A.S.S.) and he wanted a portable pulpit that he could take apart and put it in the back seat of his car and take it out on the range for the Sunday Go-To-Meetin’ Meetings where he preaches and he wanted something that was befitting the era circa. 1850. So I used Hickory (one of my favorites) because hickory was plentiful back then (or so I’ve heard) and it was basic and might be the Kind of thing the Rev. Barry M. Deep would have toted around. I have more pictures on my website, you can see them here .

Nice work, Obi. The finish is?

And who is Rev. Barry M. Deep?

Very nice Obi, now you’ll have to make a carrying case, so it don’t get scratched up.

Barry M Deep is the guy’s name. It’s a play on the phrase Bury ‘em Deep. He’s the reverand that needs the pulpit. The finish is mineral oil to begin with and then I put 10 coats of lacquer on the top with lightly sanding it in-between coats with 220, 320, 400 and 600 grit sandpaper, just to make the sand paper people happy.

Don, I used mineral oil to keep the conservationists happy and the lacquer was the spray rattle stuff in a can to keep the environmentalists from breathing down my neck, and i hired a mentally disabled guy to help me so I wouldnt get sued for discrimination. ;)

The pedestal isn’t lacquered yet, I ran out. I’ll do this Saturday when I got back to the big city.

Nice work Obi. Does the pedestal just slip into the pulpit base, or is there some type of lock?

Looks good Obi. Remember you not only have to hire the disable you have to pay them to!

(so where’s my check?)
