                          Before pipe shades                                                                          After pipe shades

     We were contracted by Mr. Tom Moody at the First Presbyterian Church in Bowling Green, KY., to construct pipe shades for his façade. After taking detailed measurements, the five individual pieces were laid out on cardboard. The design was copied from the existing casework. We used Mahogany wood to match the case. The shades are like a grid, with vertical stiles and little horizontal pieces. There were four hundred horizontal pieces in total. We installed ¼” dowels into each end of the horizontals. It was time consuming and tedious, so Jeff took the pieces home and glued them while watching TV.

     We also added two botonee Crosses to the outside shades which copied the front window of the church. The project went very well and now the organ looks complete.
