Part of the lectern design brief was to incorporate microphone cabling within the structure. Essentially this acts as an extension cable from a socket at the tope to one at the bottom and looks neater. By using two increases flexibility; it allows redundancy should one break, stereo microphones if required, or one can host a gooseneck lamp.

Now I need to decide which of two options would be best to place the mounts. The first inside the top carcass, the second outside it. Placing them inside is easier and neater, but runs the risk of the documents on the lectern overlapping. Placing them outside requires extra pieces of wood as the top is too thin.

Any suggestions?

More to come on the construction of the top carcass. But here’s a sneak peak

This is the latest on a church furniture project I've been slowly working on for 18 months. Other posts to date can be found on my blog.

Looks nice, however you might consider using a shock mount type mic connector to minimize noise transmission to the mic when the pastor (or whoever) bangs the pulpit when using a gooseneck microphone.
