Well, the lectern is finally done, my friends! After about 3 months of part-time work, this one’s in the can. No plans, just some loose measurements based on my Bryce rendering:

Bryce Rendering

I think it came out pretty close.

The book riser you see is removable; I thought maybe the pastor might want to use the main table to put an overhead projector, or some other projector on.

It’s all quartered white oak, with the exception of the four pyramids on the riser, which is Padauk.

-- Have a blessed day!

Well Patrick I don’t know what they wanted but this is more than they asked for. It is a true work fit for the Lord. I hope. Mike

This is a nice project. You did a good job on the design and the construction.

Well done.

How did you finish it?

Very well crafted. I like it. But then again I like all professional looking woodworking jobs. I think we all do simply because we all know what and how much work it takes to do one. Very nice indeed.

SMACK! That looks fantastic!
Love the rendering, I am deeply jealous of the computer skills.

Patrick, this is a beautiful project. Excellent job!
Quartersawn definitely has it’s own unique look…it’s not used enough.

Thanks for posting it.

I delivered it to him just last night, and watched him deliver his sermon from it this morning; he was extremely pleased with it. :)

-- Have a blessed day!
