Sanctuary Furniture

A DIVINE DESIGN
This craftsman found sanctuary for beautiful new furniture.

SHOP OWNER: Alan Young
LOCATION: Ypsilanti, MI

    Here are the final three pieces I made to conclude a four-piece commission, which began in early January of this year. The first work on this set began with a large sanctuary cross (see Shop Shot #412). The next piece I build was the altar, and then the pulpit and I finished the set with a Baptismal font. These pieces all feature a prominent Star in their designs, as the set was build for Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Belleville, Michigan.

  Altar

    The pieces are made of cherry, for the legs, with walnut, oak and maple as trim and borders. The finish is Zinsser dewaxed shellac, followed by a combination Bartley Gel stain and 3lb Shellac. I have included a link to my WebPage that will show many more of the construction details, close up shots, finished elements, and a page of explanations regarding the designs.
