The Wooden Weave

Greg Coverdale from Two Rivers Church in New Bern, North Carolina brings us this wooden version of the popular “The Weave” stage design.

Because the church is in an old building with large stain glass windows, they weren’t able to control the lighting very well. So they opted to do the Weave design without Coroplast. Instead they used thin plywood (luan) for the surface. That way the design would look good with or without lights. Then they chose to light the set with 5 LED Par 64s.

    It looks like the sanctuary is still used for traditional services (banners hanging behind the stage setup). Is the whole thing removable/convertible?

    • Greg Coverdale says:

      We are a church plant that meets at a school that used to be a church. (does that make sense?). We usually have to set up and take down week in and week out, but they allowed us to build and keep the stage design up for the summer. The banner was removed later.

        I am about to begin building a weave modesty panel which will convert into a backdrop for our contemporary service. Do you have a set of plans that I could use for how you attached the luan? My thoughts have been to cut “wedges” of wood and glue and nail to the luan then attach those to the side structure to obtain the bowed sections.

        Any assistance or suggestions are welcome.
