The podium turned out pretty nice. We delivered it a few days ago and my niece was very surprised and delighted. She had no idea of what I was doing. My brother and his other daughter did a good job of keeping things hush hush. And I don’t have any idea how he kept his wife quiet! :-)
Here are a few pics of the finished product.
I used Minwax Chestnut stain and numerous coats of Deft Clear Wood Finish.
The podium sits on three inch rubber casters – two with brake; two without.
Power strip installed for laptop, projector, etc.
Folding shelf in front for projector or whatever is needed.
Full extension drawer with low profile hardware that locks when closed.
Middle shelf is adjustable – shelf pin holes drilled every two inches.
My wife had to try it on for size. This was her idea for a present and I couldn’t agree more.
Finally, yours truly! :-)
