Church Pew

Hi, phew, the pew is finished. Here is a picture show start to finish. Enjoy.

Stripping outside on a cool morning.

Too hot outside now so moved into the shop.

Squaring up the glue edge before repairing the seat.
Square up the other mating edge too. How am I going to clamp this?
With a little patience it and quick hands it stayed together.
Ends made by laminating two 3/4 " panels face to face. 
Built the same way as the 100 year old pew ends.
This vise is great for holding the ends for shaping.
Once the stain is dry I will rout out the dados.
After routing out dados we fit the bench to the ends
Glue on the arm rests.
Feet on the bottom and 1st coat of varnish.
 That should compliment the other pew that is already on one side of the kitchen table.

Thanks for looking
