This is a custom designed Triptych created for the Archdiocese of OKC. Each panel measures 16×20 and is 1 3/4” thick. Joinery is mortise and tenon. Walnut with a tung oil finish.

I tried to give the piece an old world look while keeping it simple enough to duplicate. The knob on the panel on the right is to hang prayer beads. This is a prototype for (hopefully) a large order.

Very attractive work! I like it, and wish you well on obtaining a large order.

I really think the “old world look” has been achieved, nice work!

I like it. I do have one question. How does it close… it looks like all 3 panels are the same size but there is no gap for one to fold over the other. Just curious

The panels do not fold over one another. I chose the function of the operational design over the portable one. I initially wanted to put folding screen hinges on it that allow the panel to fold in either direction but I couldn’t find any large enough, so for now, it folds into an “L” or a triangle. The hinges on one side can be removed for shipping. I’ve thought about making a wooden hinge that is split in the middle for any additional orders that I receive. I’ll post photos if I go in that direction. I’m open to other suggestions if any one has any.
