A couple more pieces.
This is my revision to a lectern design a local woodworker is building for his church. That is, he's building the lectern. I don't know if he'll use my suggested changes. He had low stretchers between the legs front and back at the same height as those on the sides. The one on the speaker's side (is that the back?) would have been ankle bangers. He had a rod between the other one and the bottom of the cross, too. The one on the speaker's side could have been removed so there was just three but I thought I'd try a central stretcher instead. The wood colors should probably be reversed.
This is based on photos I found of an Italian piece from the early 1900s. The original is veneered in some sort of walnut with a lot of sapwood visible. I don't have much on the details of the drawer. I kind of suspect it is just loose in its space but there may be a central runner under it to guide it. There are guides on the sides which don't show to keep it straight when pushed in.
Thanks as always for looking.
