Gothic niche





 This is a very elaborate wall niche designed for a religious statue, preferably the Virgin Mary. It is nicely ornamented in gothic style. The doors have a simple wooden opening mechanism that really works, but of course this can be substituted by hinges if you prefer them. This pattern is based in a very old Italian design from the XIX century that I have reconstructed entirely in the computer.

 The niche is designed to be made preferably with 1/4 and 1/8 inches wood or with 6 and 3 mm wood, but of course it can be resized at will. The following table gives the measures of the niche depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Niche height Niche width Niche depth
1/4  and 1/8 in. wood  24,7 in. 8 in.  5,4 in.
6 and 3 mm. wood  59,3 cm. 19,2 cm.  13 cm.
3/8 and 3/16 in. wood 37 in. 12 in. 8,1 in.
8 and 4 mm. wood  79 cm. 25,6 cm.  17,3 cm.
