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 .
