    Need plans or pic ideas

    I am wanting to make a pedestle table for my church to put donation trays on. It will be about 30" tall and just large enough to hold the trays. I would like the support, or supports to somehow represent the Trinity.
    My, always lacking, imagination just hasn't come up with anything yet.
    Any plans or pics you can share will be appreciated.

    Trinity is three, so three legs. Tapered or curved with a suggestion of a Gothic arch? Anything that suggesting 'lifting up.' My two cents, having done liturgical furniture for years. FWIW.

    I think you must explain your your ideas to have a good result.

    Frank It might help if we knew what other type of furnishings the church had, you know what is the style ? My first take would be a 3 legged version of the Maloof pedestle Table.

    Style?
    Best description would be 'late hand-me-downs'.
    Does "plywood and nails" give you any ideas?
    I have built a couple items that I hope are somewhat better than the scrounged items from closed churches.
    I want this stand to look like some thought went into it's construction. I'm not a flatwork artist so whatever the end result is will be simply a best effort.

    Given your description I would say Dan's sort of gothic look could fit in(?). There are numerous shaker and Stickley pedestal / plant-stand styles but, the arcs on Dan's suggestion provide that "uplift" that Carol describes. Rennie has also done some beautiful church fixtures that might start some ideas.

    Thanks I'll save and use as inspiration if it don't use it outright.
