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.
