Kathi Diva's Prayer Altar


Introduction: Kathi Diva's Prayer Altar

About: I have been involved in some form of the arts since the tender age of five. It has always been my dream to create something that other people could enjoy. I also love pretty things but I am quite frugal so...

I designed and built this Prayer Altar as a gift to my friend who is Hindu.  She has been wanting a large Prayer Altar for many years but did not have a lot of extra money to spend on one.  She came to me about making one for her but I was very nervous because I had never built steps; let alone, an altar.  This project took me about two days to complete and she is very happy with it.  Looking back, there are a few things that I would have done differently but I am still happy with the results.

    Nice, you should put the photo of the finished alter first, so it appears in the thumbnail.

    Thank you very much for the advice! Will do.

    Even better, if you could get a photo of it in use (with objects in place on the steps).

    Thank you soooo much Kiteman! You are so insightful! The Altar was used for a worship ceremony last night and I asked for a picture of it being used. I will have the picture tomorrow! Though, my friend doesn't seem to understand why I need this particular picture. Thank you, Thank You, Thank You!
