Ecclesiastical Furniture

As an artisan furniture maker, Vooght-Cathrew is keen to make pieces where quality, handmade pieces can be seen and used for generations to come.  That’s why an ecclesiastical setting works for us!    We now make a lovely piece that can be used for example as a portable Nave Altar.   It looks particularly lovely with its curved leg design and has been designed to fit into Britain’s historic churches.  The top lifts off and the legs fold down by a concertina action, allowing easier movement and storage for when it’s not required.


Each one is handmade to order so we can alter the altar!  Prices are dependent on current timber prices but for example, in Ash would be around £3,200.
