Drying tray with waterproof epoxy coating for drying cruets after Masses. Made from red oak with walnut steam bent handles, inlay, and birch pegs topped with mother-of-pearl buttons.
This interesting project was the result of being asked to install these 2 solid brass holy water fonts at the entrance to the chapel. The finish matches the dye/stain water based finish used on the altar and interior of the chapel itself. They were mounted with a theft resistant security hanger system from ArtRight purchased on Amazon. It was a challenge to mount the fonts because the backs were not flat at all, and both were different. I used clear rubber bumpers to even it out so the font sat against the wood. They won’t prevent someone from stealing them, but it is a great deterrent.
