One of the more complicating factors of the lectern project is the internal XLR wiring. Two panel mounts installed on the lectern tablet and two within the bass are connected with wiring within the vertical column. (Made more complex by an adjustable height column.)
The panel mounts are 24.1 mm deep - tricky in a 20mm top. Options are:
1. Re-cut the top from 2" timber.
2. Build up the table around the mount (either above or below.)
3. Move the mounts from the corner to within the box (about 5cm, which could get the way of the paper/books.)
Happy to hear suggestions.
