Finally finished the lectern!
It is made from Red Oak with Minwax Golden Oak stain and three applications gloss poly. The only mechanical fasteners used were to attach the foot and top to the column. Everything else is mortise and tenon, half lap and dados. I still need to add some felt pads as protective feet.
The top is 20” x 20” and it stands 46” at the mid point of the top, My brother-in-law is quite tall and requested this height. The picture he sent me, from the church furniture catalog, had this piece selling for a little over $800! I think I will charge him a lot less than that!!
Thanks for looking!
