Progress Report On Tabernacle Frame

Here are 2 photos of the frame at this point. There is still much woodworking yet to do.  I have pieces of wood soaking in water right now.  These pieces will be shaped after they have softened and can be bent without breaking.  This part of the project is not my favorite, but there is no way around it. Wood fibers must be either steamed or soaked, and as I don't care to build a chamber to steam the wood, I let it soak in water until I can bend it.  Working outside on the back porch is nice. I enjoy the warmer weather and the sunlight.  Construction & Design by F. D. Zigler.
