Default Communion table

I thought someone might be interested in this Communion Table I have just made for my local church. I may make another if requested but would need to be more efficient - this took me 8 months.
PS I can't actually figure out how to attach an image

Greetings Michael and welcome to the router forum.

Yes I would be interested in seeing it, I have the one for our Church in the garage waiting to be refinished, at least the top, when I get the shop done in the basement.

It would seem that they would put Flowers on it and water would leak onto the top and has begun to de-laminate the top. The top it would seem is made from oak vainer plywood the rest of the table from popular. The top is stained, the rest is painted so I will be doing just the top. Because it has begun to de-laminate, I will just turn it over remove the edge molding and use the other side of the top. The tricky part will be replacing the edge molding, it looks to be solid oak and has an "ogee", or the like, treatment on the edge. What I would like to do is put a 2" wide oak, turned down and chamfer the edge.

The reason it is tricky is not because it is hard to duplicate, it is tricky because of church politics, if you know what I mean. Our church is growing very fast so it may not be an issue at this point.

Hurry up Michael and get ten posts in so that you will be able to post photographs. Don't worry about how long it took you to make, we have well known members who tend to procrastinate from time to time. Welcome to our happy, knowledgeable forum.

Yes indeed - the church politics need to be handled carefully. The one I came across was who would be offended when the current communion table is disposed of. Luckily, no one in the congregation could remember who made it so we couldn't actually identify a potentially offended parishioner.
The table I have made is solid Marri so delamination shouldn't be a problem. I have finished it with Beckers Acroma which seems to be resistant to most things.
