I have a small commission to make 13 more of these Attachment 52198 for a church. they wanted them painted and the color they choose was this blue. They are 15"x18.5" and have a 3/8" cove in the edges. the edges will be gilded but they have someone who will gild them for free and I don't work for free so I won't do that part. Since they are painted all I wanted was a clear straight grained wood with not knots. I first was going to use poplar but the poplar that was available was garbage. All cupped and full of knots. The the ash they had that was decent was 3.5 a bd.ft. but they had these nice 12 ft stick of bass wood and it was only $2.00 a bd.ft.. the choice was an easy one. should have this done and get paid in plenty of time for my Christmas shopping.
