**UPDATE** Due to a hard drive crash I no longer have the drawings mentioned in this article. I apologize.
A few years back I had an idea for a custom podium that would match my city theme. I always thought the traditional newspaper box would work well and so I built one and used it for years. I wanted to share my design in the hopes that others would be able to build it and enjoy it as much as I did so I’m in the process of creating a model and measured drawings in Google Sketchup.
Till then, enjoy a few photos (after the jump) and let me know what you think.
