Restore The Historic Altar and Reinvest in Your Church

02 Feb 2012

Posted by Joseph Coupal

Egan's Church Furnishings and Restorations was asked by Father John Andrews, to help his parish Our Lady of Lourdes in Wellfleet Ma, to save and repair their historic altar.   This beautifully ornate altar and reredos had been removed from their closed summer chapel and put into the rectory basement, where it was continuing to deteriorate from neglect.
Egan's Church Furnishings brought their team of woodwork experts to the altar repair project. We were able to determine that although the altar had suffered from wood rot caused by water damage, we could save and restore the altar.   We carefully brought the altar to our shop.   
Our team hand sanded all parts of the altar.   We then repaired the rotted wood in the base, preserving the original materials and strengthening the wood to be as strong as real wood.   We then prepared the altar for staining.
The altar was stained to match the other church furniture.  Egan's artists then hand painted Mica based gold paint on the ornate trim on the altar.  The wood altar was then sealed in order to add a protective layer to prevent scratches and possible stains.
From sections of the old altar table that were no longer needed, we created and built a new pulpit and baptismal font. See the before and after photos of the church altar to the left here.
Egan's Church Furnishings and Restorations brings a full team of restoration and repair experts to every project.  When repairs or restorations are needed, we have all the products and services to complete your project; contact us for a quote.
