This Shtender is crafted in solid African Mahogany at the Synagogue Studios. The durable lacquer finish enriches the incredible grain pattern reflections. Each element was carefully carved by hand using knife techniques. The shtender is designed to ergonomic proportions.
This mahogany shtender is one of four shtenders. Each of the four was designed and built individually from different woods and finishes. The prayer stands were designed and hand carved for Temple Israel in Detroit, MI, USA. This design features hand carving of the Magen David on the side. It was built from solid wood Mahogany.
