Description

This is a one of a kind wall piece made from a 20th Century Mahogany church pugh (the things you sit on at church, ya heathan).

I have a friend that makes church pughs for a living, and he kept the old pughs after replacing them with new ones. They've been on a shelf collecting dust for years in a workshop, and were destined for landfill. He gave me a couple, and I used a CNC router to carve out a hidden pocket on the backside and carve out a gothic window profile around the high cross that was already engraved in it.

This is a distressed piece. It does have a couple scars if you look close at the originals. I was able to sand away most of the sideways gash, but there is also a patched hole, and I left a little grime in it from the metal shop drill press. It looks great, and is a super conversation piece.

There is a hidden compartment on the backside that is secured with 4 screws, but note, this might not be super stealthy. The backside had a carved out section where the seat back fit in, and I patched it with a piece from a lower area. The color doesn't match exactly, so it might raise question. Also, just because it's such a good conversation piece, it just might draw some attention.

I think this is pretty dope to look at.

Unit was finished with a special teak oil blend. That's kinda hard to find, son.

Unit is a little over 9x11" at its largest point, and around 1.5" thick. The hidden compartment is about 5x8".
