Topic tags/keywords: pulpit

I did my largest – and perhaps most gratifying – piece as a commission for the pastor of a small church. It was a mission style pulpit. You can see it in my projects list.

I thought some of you might want the back story on it – complete with pictures and comments, from conception to delivery – so I put it up on my website. I think you’ll find it interesting…takes about 5 minutes to read. You can see it here.

Looks good.

There’s a spelling error on your website. Says Mad instead of Made.

Gerry, thanks for pointing out that spelling error, but I couldn’t find it; could you please be more specific?

Since you’re OK with some proofreading:

“The project too in excess of 100 hours…” Should read “took”.

“The completed massive legs. 4” on inch side.” Should read “4” on each side.”

“The raised panels are oboviously…” should be “obviously”

“I wold not have been able to get through the door…” should be “would”
