Since attending a small church which is still in it’s infancy our preacher had been using an old music stand for a pulpit, and since I had just finished building some boxes for the kids in church I was volunteered to build a new pulpit. No one seemed to know what they wanted but did agree that it needed to be mobile so it could be moved when not needed.
Never having built anything along these lines I had to scratch my head a bit. I used red oak for this project, it has raised panels center front and on the sides with a built in PA system. For the speakers I recessed them in 4 inches and designed and built new speaker fronts, one on each side. For the speaker covers I used a rail and style joint then I purchased an 36 X 36 sheet of aluminum with a clover design from Lowe’s and cut it to fit, I then backed it with some plastic screen wire. To pull it all tight I ran some screen rubber seal all the way around so as not to rattle when used. The back door panels are 1/4” Luna.
To power it up I installed a heavy power strip inside, run the end over to the lower right corner and out. I cut the female in end off replaced it with a 15 amp male end so all one needed to do was run an extension cord to it. I also placed a guard around it to help protect the prongs.
