We are still open to making this product for customers who can pick it up in Jefferson, Ohio.
Due to multiple shipping issues coupled with rising postage prices, in March 2021 we made the difficult decision to stop shipping this item. However, it is such a unique design, based on years of input from catechists, that we hope these plans help you build your own Altar Cabinet.
Please note that this is the messy version of our construction notes for the Altar Cabinet (Sacristy) for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1 designed originally by Mike Kwitowski of Atrium Woodworks. Please read them all the way through before starting.
Description: An improved version of the CGS Altar cabinet design with drawer included.
- Baltic birch plywood - 18"W x 7 1/4" D x 25" H
- More interior room
- 5 removable shelves 5"W x 7"D
- Magnetic latch on doors
- 2 feet for added stability
- 2 wooden crosses supplied for optional placement on doors
5 removable shelves provide a total of up to 8 adjustable compartments. Cabinet can accommodate a variety of material sizes. Each shelf has hidden slots that lock the shelf in place and prevent them from falling out.
This configuration has been requested by catechists who wanted a fixed bottom shelf, but adjustable shelves above. The 2 doors have hardwood knobs, brass hinges, and a magnetic latch. Two feet provide added stability.
The cabinet is unfinished. 2 Door Crosses are shipped unattached and can be glued or nailed onto the doors at time of finishing by the Catechist. Feet are shipped unattached and require simple assembly (4 screws).
