The last project I posted showed some pews my company built for a private Catholic school chapel. As it turned out, the school added a new chapel when they built an additional dorm and we got this commission as well.
This time around we built all the furnishings for the chapel. The primary wood is white oak and the dark, stained portions are red oak.
Installing the dark trim around the canopy was probably the hardest portion of this project. We didn’t make any extra molding and due to the shape of the pediment, we only got one shot at getting the cut right. To do so, we used a couple pieces of plywood and trimmed them until the fit was perfect then used those as cutting guides on a 9” bandsaw we brought onsite.
