    Talking My Largest Commsion so far - Finished more pics for Rob

    I have the honor of getting a commision to build all of the furishings for the sactuary of a new catholic church. They are just starting constrution so I have time but I'll design and build the alter anbo(pulpit) celebrants chairs, everything. All I know right now is that it will be mission style. I am meeting with the pastor in the morning to go over the details. I'll be posting a bunch of stuff on the design forum then the progress pics here. Maybe even a little turning can you emagine 4 foot candle holders.

    Not only seeing but actually seating on it! Make sure they feel comfortable or the priest is going to sue you for making his audience diminish!!


    Jokes apart. Those are great news Don. You'll be busy for while and we'll be waiting for your posts of the process!
    Best regards,
