This is a case that started in my shop and was finished by my friend Mike for a local church in time for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on 12-12-12. The stature of Our Lady of Guadalupe is take from house to house and had to be well protected. When Mike was given the wooden stature, it was broken at the base and he repaired it and reinforced it with fiberglass from the inside. You cannot even see that it was repaired.
We made the box and lid at my shop and he made the outside trim and interior statue supports and added the hinged, handle and hasps.
She can be safely carried from now on.
Great work Mike!!...........................Jim
