Solomon's Temple Journal: Day Four (Thursday) Part 2
A daily log of my church's building of Solomon's Temple.
About this creation
The Backstory


Alright...here's what's going on. My church's mega-sized VBS is doing a Lego elective for the second year in a row and this year's giant project is a 50,000+ piece Solomon's Temple. The temple is supposed to be constructed Monday through Friday by 150+ kids and a handful a leaders. This is day four (Part two)!

So Philip, Mr. S, Mr. H, Samuel, Mr. H's younger son Abraham, and myself all came in at 8:00 PM on Thursday to finish the rest of the Temple. The tan thing really set us back.

The Build


Construction is going to take a very long time. We keep the finished model in front of us for inspiration.

I had the tedious job of laying down tile.

When cracks are spotted, we get out a hammer and pound the pieces together. The windows were a pain in the neck. No matter how hard you hammered, it would not stay in place...

Many of us crawled inside the temple. It was a lot of fun. :)

Samuel and Mr.H did a great job on the pillars!

When Everything's Over...


We made this much progress tonight! From 8:00 PM to 11:30 PM the temple really shot up! But we're not done. Only Philip and I went home. Samuel and everyone else worked until 1:00 AM.

Make sure to follow the updates! The last one (Friday) is coming out soon! See ya' later!

Quoting Dan Church This is one amazingly ambitious project, and to built in only 5 days is just crazy! Where did your church get the pieces and the money to buy them, assuming some of them came from Bricklink?
Actually they were all ordered directly from Denmark, straight from the Lego Company. It was a deal where, since we were using them for educational purposes, we got 2 cents or so off each piece, which doesn't seem like much, but it adds up. XD

Quoting Benjamin Sea Hm, do you believe in God..?
Yes.
Quoting Benjamin Sea Solomon wrote the book of Proverbs in the Bible, try adding the Ark of the Covenant,
We already have. Look at the other pictures.
Quoting Benjamin Sea ever heard of how to build a column? Would be great to add that to it, you can look at the tip at Lego creator's desk.
Yes I have. I already watched the column technique before you posted it, and I'm not even in charge of the columns. Besides the LCD column is too small.
Quoting Benjamin Sea Nice job, but I think it's off from the actual thing.
It's not.

Love it! Very nice job! Good to see the vestibule on the front is going to be nice and high too, which is accurate if you compare the dimensions found in at 2 Chronicles 3:4, where it says the porch was 120 cubits high! Most leave it very low, but according to this verse, it was very tall. Like 180 feet tall roughly! That must have been seen from far and wide! Great work!

Hm, do you believe in God..? Or are you just a person who likes to study history instead? Solomon wrote the book of Proverbs in the Bible, try adding the Ark of the Covenant, ever heard of how to build a column?
