Lectern for Eagle’s Nest

Ready for use.

The youth room at Eagle’s Nest Worship Center in Naples needed a sturdy lectern. More than a music stand, one that could hold notes and books and a drink for the preacher/teacher/speaker. So I made one. I started with rough-sawn Florida cypress for the top, bottom and face frame. Then planed it smooth and straight. For sturdiness and natural appearance I used oak dowels instead of screws. And to help with portability I mounted non-marking rubber tires beneath and made two of them locking for stability. To bring out the natural colors of the wood I applied a hand-rubbed urethane finish.
