This was one of those projects that starts with the phrase, “That’ll be fairly simple” or “Sure, easy peasy”.
My brain does not do compound mitres. Simply won’t. Regardless, I got through it without too many brain cells oozing out of my ears.

All three projects are quite lovely and nicely built. The pen is very colorful and artistic in design. Nice work.

Bill, that compound angle on the top would be tricky. I would have made the base larger. Beautiful wood. Church projects are tough because you want it to be your best possible work. I settled for an H shaped base on the last one of these I made. No compounds that way.

Looks great. Wood is beautiful. But…who puts a podium right in front of a door? You might want to rethink that.
