Oak table

There is an oak table now surplus to requirements in Helensburgh Parish Church. It was the vestibule table in St Columba Church in the town. I guess it was made for that job. The top measures 136 X 55 cm – and it is 92 cm in height.

It has deep recesses at each end for hymnbooks, offering bags, or lost property. There is a 1-2 mm gap between the panels of the top – but that may take up again if it moves out of the hothouse atmosphere of our Gathering Space. Pictures can be supplied if requested

Enquiries to Douglas Sammon, email douglas@sammon.org.uk - phone 01436 675340.
