Undoubtedly some of you heard of the tornado that almost literally destroyed the entire city of Greensburg Kansas on May 4, 2007.
Our church undertook the project of raising funds, and building a home for one of the resident families that lost everything except the lot on which they lived.
Greensburg is located slightly more than 100 miles west of Wichita, so there has been a great deal of commuting to work on the house.
Some of the trim work is still incomplete, but the project is nearing completion. This bay window bench/storage unit is the most visible part of my contribution. As the photo shows, the staining and varnishing is not yet complete, but basic construction and installation is complete. The oak plywood top and inserts in the mortise and tendon front frame were fabricated in my home shop and then transported and final assembled on site.
