Podium for Sassy Jacks Stitchery classes

I built this podium for my wife’s business classes. The Lectern can be adjustable from flat to about a 30 degree angle give or take. The overall height is also adjustable from 38 to 50 inches. Pegboard was used for the front and sides so banners or product could be displayed during classes. Wheels on the bottom back were placed so it can be leaned back onto the wheels to be rolled to storage when not needed.

Side note when my wife asked if I could build a podium my answers was ” I have never been behind one not sure what it would look like.” You want a flat top or angled one. What would it look like wide or post base, She said “Can’t you make it anyway. So that is how and or why it had to be so adjustable.

You did a nice job. Adjustable…you deserve more than thanks. As a retired elementary teacher find a magnet strip to mount behind or quick mount on the front to quick mount posters with magnet clips or round magnets. most schools the boards are both chalkboards, marker boards and magnet boards. we hung a lot of work fast for demo and display, try the dollar stores.

I believe this is the first adjustable lectern I’ve seen. The mechanism is certainly unique.

By the way, to satisfy my English teacher mother, a lectern is what you put lecture notes on. A podium is a platform that you stand on – like Olympic medal winners take their place on the podium. It has been used incorrectly for so long that some dictionaries began including lectern as a definition of podium.

Have your say...
