I am linking up with Kim and Frog Pond's Rock for her Sunday [in Australia] Selections of photos. While these are not ones that I have taken, they have been sitting too long in my files, and I wanted to share them to keep Dad alive somehow. He has been gone now just over five years which seems hard to comprehend. There are days, like today, when it feels as if it were yesterday...
The project above was the audio table for a church. His notes say that he just made a rough sketch of what they needed and then made it up as he went along. The top of it is a roll top that he had to work with cables in order for it to roll correctly. This was just one of several projects that he donated to various churches around town. This one being the St. Andrews Methodist Church.
It was the same church where he restored this window below. I couldn't find any other pictures in his files. The one just beneath it is one I snagged from Google Maps Street view. I remember this project of his because he had a difficult time getting the wood frames for the windows to bend the way he needed them to without breaking. So he just built his own steam machine that softened the wood enough to make it pliable.
In the photo below, he created an Ark for the Torah at the Temple B'nai Israel in the name of Lou Schatz, one of Dad's good friends. He used 100 year old rough sown pine that he got from another remodel project three years prior.
