    Book stand for our church

    They wanted a stand for the Book of Gospels. The old one was a plant stand with a plastic book holder. Birch plywood with Peruvian walnut accents. No stain or laquer yet. Our priest wanted it for Easter, Tuesday it was still a sheet of plywood. This project was talked about after last Easter. No sense doing today what you can put off until tomorrow.

    Nice looking stand! Much better than a plant stand. Glad to know I'm not the only procrastinator around here!

    That looks great Dale! I'm sure everyone feels it was well worth the wait.

    Very nice, Dale. I like the curve in the base.

    Very tastefully elegant! If I recall correctly, there's no commandment against procrastination

    A great gift for the Church Dale,
    I'm always trying to come up with the perfect gift to give to my Priest. The wheels are turning again. It's nice to do something special for the poeple that help us through difficult times.

    Very nice job Dale.

    Great project!! Ours is a fairly new congregation and we got our certificate of occupancy for our building right around Easter of last year. I am very blessed by being able to do lots of woodworking projects for the Church as we basically need everything.

    Dale, I'd say "Elegant" nailed it!

    Well done, it will look even better with the finish on it!
