St. John United Methodist Church
Jamie Garvey and the members of the Dobson crew camp it up as the console is moved into the church. The console is this tall because its internal mechanism extends below the choir risers, so that the trackers can run under the floor from the console into the organ. The actual floor level of the choir risers would be about waist high in this photograph.
The organ stands behind the choir in the front of this 1840s sanctuary.
The center tower comes within 3/8" of the arch.
The cherry case has pipe shades handcarved of basswood.
We also made a matching cross, which is suspended over the altar. Like the organ case, it is made of cherry, though stained dark; unlike the case, the lighter colored surfaces are gilded.
The organ after the façade pipes are installed. The greenish glow comes from internal fluorescent lights.
