Our little Methodist church was originally built in 1857 and was in need of a total renovation. Included in the renovation was a need for a new pulpit and lectern. But the goal was to also make it more modern and facilitate more contemporary services, etc. The design had to have some old school flavor and yet be removable to provide an open stage for skits, etc. This is what I came up with. The unseen feature that makes things a bit unique is that each unit is mounted on a step extension that conceals a set of casters built into the base of each unit. To remove them all that is needed is to lift the units up, placing them on the floor and rolling them away on the casters. A real labor of love for me.

Nicely done. The step extension is a great idea.
