Here is the finished product. If you look carefully you will see a small slot on the side of the front frame where we can slide different placards in and out depending on who is using the podium.

If I was going to do another one, I would make it 3” taller and 6” less deep, but overall it works really well for the short people we have here.

There is a moveable “lip” that can rest in three different spaces to support work that is set on the “slope” of the top shelf.

Your moveable lip idea is very clever. That should make it easier for those with difficulty seeing at certain distances. The placard is a good idea for your work application. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice.. reminds me of the podiums at a hotel where the company I work for puts on a forum each year.. Your design has those few extra features that make it superior. You might think that its too deep right now, but the second that someone throws a big ol’ laptop on it, they’ll be thanking you.
