Lincoln College Chapel's Choir in Oxford has a custom made pipe organ built for the Chapel. The console and paneling were made to fit under the gallery also the organ standing above is connected using tracker action. I built the console and paneling and carved the shades inspired from late seventeenth-century style of ornamentation.

''The Chapel was built in 1629-1631. Its chief glories were the windows and the screen; this is built of cedar wood (to recall the Temple in Jerusalem) and for over a hundred years filled the Chapel with the scent of cedar. The front pews with their statues and the carved ceiling were added in the 1680s''
