This summer I haven’t gone hiking, but instead I’ve used my days off to build the altar furnishings for the new church. They were designed by our architect Steve Rice, and they feature visually interesting angles and shapes, highlighting the grain changes in the tight grain of the Douglas Fir plywood. So far I’ve completed the construction of the lectern, credence table, main altar, and baptismal font, and I’m nearly done with the chapel altar. Still to go is applying the clear finish and adding a steel show to the base of each one. I’ll also make two hymnboards and the aumbry.
