This past summer (2014), my church had a fire that wiped out everything. The acrylic podium that we had is a melted heap of plastic.

Now in our new digs, we were in need of a new podium. So I volunteered to build one. Since I work mainly in pine, that is what I used.

We have people of different heights using the podium, so I made it adjustable in height.

The base is a pine glue up with another layer underneath that is 3/4 ply – I wanted a heavy, solid base. So the base is now 1 1/2 inches thick with plenty of stability.

There are a lot of glue ups with this piece and most of it is built with biscuits.

Very nice! I’m currently working on a podium for my son’s church. I wish I had seen a couple of the ideas you implemented before I did mine.
