Jon McKinley from Calvary Christian Center brings us this fishy stage design for under $100.
They have a fisherman who attends their church. He donated an old metal boat to the design. They got an artist from their congregation to paint the ugly green boat to look like a wooden boat.
They made the pulpit out of lattice pieces bought from Home Depot for around $.98 each ($20 total). The barrel was donated by a local coffee distribution warehouse. They ages the barrel and pulpit with a blow torch (outside).
They built the dock from an old fence and the pylons were made from some old telephone poles a member of the church had at his warehouse.
The rope was bought at Home Depot for $.59 a foot (40ft).
The total cost for the stage, minus existing lights, was right around $100.
