Abston Church of Christ by Amy Hughes

Abston Church of Christ Posted by Hello

I love old fashion church architecture with all the stained glass windows, high arched ceilings with lighting, tile flooring and fine carpentry. Watching the news with the election of the Pope was fascinating with the beauty of the church architecture in the background.

So being one who is visually inspired, the Abston Church of Christ by Amy Hughes is a delight to behold! On Amy's site , she details the history of the church, construction (with photos), dedication of the project and why she considers churches worthy subjects for modeling.

Dimensions are: 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 30 inches!

When asked: How much time did it take to build?

Amy's answer was insightful - "It was about a year and a half of planning, building and photographing. It was a big project, but it was less time than most people spent watching TV during that same year and a half."

I need to turn off the TV and get busy! I can't wait to retire so that I can refire to have a full scale workshop to practice my love of fine carpentry. Until then, could it be that using Legos is a more practical resource and creative use of time? Sawdust and clean up time certainly wouldn't be an issue!
