Here’s the challenge: must be 20” wide, (no challenge at all). BUT, it’s got to be 18” deep, requires a 15 degree tilt, and the minister is short! Try it out: if you span a depth of 18”, 15 degrees will hide the minister! The solution was to level off the top at about 14”.
Here’s the result, made of red oak, stained and sealed in polyurethane.

Nice project and well done.

I am also impressed that you called it a lectern and no a podium. So many people don’t know the difference these days :) .

Have a Merry Christmas.

Thank you for your nice comments!
It’s going to sit on a base that is already there. The grain match was easy: just used one board for the base, cut to lengths needed, and numbered them. Then, morticed “by the numbers”. Voila: grain match all around!
By the way, what distinguishes a lectern from a podium?
