How to build an Alter
By: / Beginner
Post # 1
Building an alter for your rituals is easy. I'll give you the basic's and then you have to use your imagination to build your own design and create your own.

materials Needed: 1-2 sheets of Wood (Oak,Cherry,Hickory,Walnut)
(Depending on the size you want it)
Wood Glue or Flat headed wood screws
Skill Saw
Tape Measure
Wooden Pegs

The first thing you need to do is draw out your design out on a piece of paper to get your idea for your alter of how you want it to look and the size you want it.
Mine is a small one 18''x 11'' but you can build them as big as you want but remember that you need to only make it big enough that when you are trying to put
it up or hide it that it will fit. Next you need to draw your design on the wood of the table top and how you want it to look and then draw out the legs and how you
imagined them looking. Next using the skill saw cut out your designs on the wood carefully. Once you've got it all cut out now is time for the assembly. attach the
legs on it using the wood glue or screws. (If you use wood glue then you need to let it set for at least 24 hour to securely dry) I would suggest using the wood
flat wood screws and then using the wooden pegs to cover them for more stabilization to the table. once you've got it assembled now you can design it or draw on it how
ever you like to create to personalize it to yourself.. Once you have finished you have created your own alter to use for your rituals.

If you have any questions or would like to see mine let me know and I will be glad to help you or show you mine to help you get started.

Good Luck and Happy Building!!!!
