AXP Category/Hours: Project Planning & Development – 19 Hours


This week the shop has been mostly focusing on starting to glue up two end towers for casework for a new organ being installed into the chapel at Bishop Gadsden.  The entire week has been spent sanding and gluing up sections of it in order to get it ready for paint.  The sections are fairly large and require a lot of work in order to get them prepared because any small imperfection gets magnified whenever you paint it.  Installation of the casework is going to start next week so I am looking forward to doing that part of the job.  Although it will be an interesting problem to have to tackle seeing as how these large parts of the casework have to be lifted about 12’ up into the air to the balcony where they will be placed.
