This is my first post and my first woodworking project. Found lots of inspiration here on Lumberjocks, so thank you to everyone. Took longer than I thought it would but the learning process was worth it. The lectern stands 42” tall on its wheels. I made it from Poplar with Birch panels, 42×24 x 20 dimensions. Now on to something new.

That turned out really nice. What did you do for a finish?

Thank you for the comments. I finished the lectern using Minwax Gel Stain (honey maple) after applying the Minwax Pre-stain. This was followed by 6 coats of Watco Crystal Clear Lacquer Satin (and lots of sanding). Still wanting a smoother finish I applied numerous coats of Minwax Paste Finishing Wax (lots of buffing). It was all worth it.
So far I am extremely satisfied with the Minwax product line.

Have your say...
