Red oak lectern made for my Sunday school class. My first time to make panels with stiles and rails. Had a lot of fun hand cutting the dovetails on the top portion. Inset oak veneer plywood for the top surface, held in place with a combination of pocket screws on the short sides and biscuits on the long sides. Top can be removed for transport or storage, held on by 5 bolts from underneath which thread into screw in inserts. Finished with minwax oil based stain and satin poly.

I’ve been toying with the idea myself. Our lecture is about half the size it should be.

Nice looking and functional, and it has plenty of room for Bible and book. That should serve well for many years. Thanks for sharing.
