    Speaker's podium

    Hey guys and gals. It's been a while since I posted much of anything over here but thought since I'd been stickin my head in a bit more now and then that I'd post this and see how high it goes up the pole before someone salutes it. It's a speakers podium made with maple, stained cherry and made on a design that I came up with about a year ago. The first one I made from this design was oak and is at a tech college. This one goes to the electic coop board room, stained to match their board room table. The pulll outs on either side are for the speakers computer and possibly a projector to use during presentations.

    Very nice Jim but that was to be expected.

    Good to see you drop in, Jim. Great-looking podium for sure. That's no surprise coming from you. The pull-outs look like a handy feature, too.

    The dimensions 39 tall on the front before the arch 36 inches tall at the back, 28 wide 18 deep, the top angle rises at 15 degrees from the back side to meet the flat spot at the top of the angle where a microphone stand will sit. The back actually stands at 39" and the front at 42 after the wheels are applied.

    Really cool Jim. The way you made the tray invisible is really neat IMHO.

    Customer should be really happy with it.
    cheers
