In the spring of 2007, our band got a new conductor and I built this podium for him. It was the first and therefore the “prototype” of more to come. It is still in service, although he will be departing soon and (I hope) will take this with him…the band’s logo is hand-carved in walnut, inset in the front.

Great project.I especially like the band’s logo on the front. I also play in a band and have thought of building a new podium for our director. I think adding a removeable safety rail might be a good idea.

I created an account just so I could comment on this post. The conductor’s podium Cindy made for me is not only one of the most thoughtful presents I’ve ever received, it’s the finest podium I’ve used in my career as a teacher. I offered to let the new director use the podium for a few weeks while she gets a new one squared away, then I’m proudly using it in my classroom.:) Thank you, Cindy, I LOVE my podium.:)
