Church Altar and tabernacle stand – day 28

Just a quick post this evening. I sanded down all the surfaces that were urethaned yesterday. They did not need much because not much dust settled on altar parts. The one area that needed the most attention was the raised panels. The big cuts around the panels had a lot of fuzzy grain that rose up when it was coated last night. I aggressively rubbed them down with a Scotch-Brite pad until they were smooth again.

Second coat on the tabernacle base bottom

I am not too worried about the plywood bottom of the altar, so as soon as I put the second coat around the trim and bottom veneer, my son and I flipped it over so I could get a coat on the top. I did the same thing with the tabernacle top as well, except that could sit on its locating dowels.

Looking pretty good

The top looks pretty good with the first coat applied. You can barely see any filler, and the grain on the inlaid crosses pops out nicely.

I remembered to put a coat of urethane on the plugs as well this time…

It only took a couple of hours to get everything coated. Hopefully I will get just about everything done by this weekend. Then I can get my shop back. I have quite a few small projects that have accumulated over the last month, just waiting for some bench space…
