I was asked to build this altar for the local Boy Scout camp’s new chapel. The money for the new chapel was raised in honor of our next door neighbor’s son, who passed away at the age of 17. I had helped him with his Eagle Scout project the previous year.
The architect gave me the blueprint for it and a cabinet (not accustomed to having a plan handed to me). The legs are 6” x 8”, the top is 3 1/4” x 6’ yellow pine roof decking. Yes, its definitely heavy, it took 4 people to load it.
I thought it looked a bit plain, so I added the point from the Scout Law on the front apron.
Now, one of the priests says the top is not large enough, so when I get some time and a buddy, we will take it apart (easier than trying to load it again), bring it home and build a larger top and apron.
