When we first started having Sunday Mass at the Fitzgerald Ivy Chapel in Tulsa, we had only a simple table for an altar. Parishioner Ben Brouse quickly started work on making a set of gradines and a mock tabernacle to help provide a Catholic foundation on which to build. Using select pine he crafted the gradines and mock tabernacle in sections for ease in setting up and taking down the altar. He said that he added design elements as he worked and saw the need, like the little boxes that form a border underneath each gradine top. He added what he describes as a “Roman” roof to the mock tabernacle to make it more attractive.
