Preserving and restoring the interior of a church that dates back to 1927 was a monumental opportunity. At Cathedral of Christ the King, custom ornamental casework in the sanctuary required unusually detailed millwork.

We incorporated unique cutout symbol carvings from the pews into the panels we created for the choral risers, and we used multiple layers of built-up millwork on the doors. The beautiful red oak we chose perfectly captured the heritage and old-world feel of the church.

Because the church was an historic building, there were rules and regulations about what we could and couldn’t do to maintain the original integrity of the church. All of the trades involved in this project had specialty craftsmen and craftswomen on hand. There was also a liturgical consultant and an artist known for restoring historical buildings.

Together, we preserved the Cathedral of Christ the King for generations to come.
