It is carved from one piece of Honderus mohogany. This is to be gilded also.
I was able to get started on all eight columns of the tabernacle
this week. They are coming along very well. They have recieved
3 coats of gesso, and are being sanded with 220 grit lightly.
I also recieved the 'floor' and 'ceiling' and will recieve the dome
that tops all this off this coming Monday.
I'm excited, they pushed the deadline up to Dec.11th! So I will be
working around the clock to get this finished.
I wasn't sure how to post this, I hope it makes sense. I will show
more as this progresses.
...but as things go, this is coming together nicely.
