New Wood Floor & Tabletop Lecterns Now on ABC Office

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

When it comes to giving speeches and presentations, having a nice lectern to stand behind really enhances the experience and provides a focal point that makes the entire presentation a success. At ABC Office we offer a wide selection of Lecterns (found here). To date, we have over 30 different models to choose from. These lecterns range from models as simple as a tabletop design to an exact replica of the President’s podium. I would like to cover over a half dozen new models we have just added to our site.

In just the last two weeks, we have added lecterns from manufacturers such as Executive Wood, AmpliVox and Oklahoma Sound. We only add the best to our site, so I can safely say that these podiums are solid products. Some of our new lecterns, from AmpliVox and Oklahoma Sound, even include built-in amplifiers, speaker systems and wireless microphones to enhance the experience. In fact, some are rated at being adequate for providing sound for an audience of over 2,500 people.

Executive Wood Collegiate Restaurant Host StandWhether you’re opening a new restaurant or want to boost the professional credibility of an existing one, a host stand is a great piece of furniture to use. At ABC Office we offer a great selection of podiums and lecterns (found here) that also make great restaurant host stands. I would like to point out some customer favorites and cover a few custom modifications you may want to consider using. Here are just a few ideas.

To start, having a host stand provides a great location for a host or hostess to hold paperwork, reservation lists and other paperwork. It also provides a professional location for them to stand, greet and help customers as they enter the restaurant. A host stand should look professional, should be movable and should be functional. I would like to recommend five pulpits and lecterns that our customers really like.

Executive Wood Collegiate Podium (found here) – This is by far our most popular restaurant host stand (shown above). It is made from beautiful cherry hardwood and looks stunning in person. It includes a cabinet, a cubbyhole and a wide surface for holding material. The front of it shows the natural wood grant and it features a small trim around the top and a thicker trim around the base. It sits on concealed casters that allow it to be easily moved around a floor for easy positioning. You are going to be hard pressed to find a better looking, more functional or better quality restaurant host stand. Custom modifications are available including the addition of a lamp.

Executive Wood Senator Host StandExecutive Wood Senator Podium (found here) – This podium has a more traditional look, but still looks excellent in a restaurant. It features a wider top, a more narrow column and a base that helps provide ample support. This podium works great as a host stand and is made from solid red oak and is available in several stains including light oak, medium oak and dark oak. Hidden casters make this podium easy to move around. This podium looks great and is our second most popular host stand that we offer.

This podium features a very functional surface and several shelves for an amazing storage capacity. This podium also features concealed casters that make it easy to move around the floor. This host stand is excellent for high-class dining / restaurants. The work surface can be angled or laid down flat. Grommets have been strategically placed to allow for wire chases.

This host stand features a huge 46″ W by 29″ D work surface that can be used to hold reservations, buzzers, a cash register and much more. It is made from cherry hardwood and is by far one of the most elegant pieces we offer. It is made to last and features high-quality workmanship. It includes several storage compartments including cupboards and drawers. A total of four hidden casters make this podium easy to move around and make it excellent for use in a restaurant that needs to rearrange or move furniture on a regular basis. Custom modifications are available upon request including locking doors, a cooling fan and much more.

Executive Wood PSS248 Pedestal Host StandExecutive Wood PSS248 Pedestal (found here) – This speaker’s stand isn’t as large as the above podiums, but still looks elegant and still provides ample work surface.

Executive Wood Presidential Podium Review

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Executive Wood Presidential PodiumAre you looking for a podium that has class, a professional look and is made from high quality wood? If this is what you’re looking for, you may want to consider the Executive Wood Presidential Podium (found here). This is my review.

They don’t call it the Presidential Podium for nothing. It has a very similar look and feel to the podium presidents have used at the White House for years. This podium is ideal in professional environments for giving speeches, lectures and presentations. Here are a few things you may not know about the Presidential Podium.

To begin with, the Presidential Podium is made from solid hardwood materials. This wood is available in a selection of Walnut, Cherry or Mahogany finishes. The fabric finish is a available in black, red or blue. The blue fabric is designed to match the look and color of the podium the President of the United States uses. For comparison, I am including a sample picture of President Obama using a similar Presidential Podium in this article.

The Presidential Podium is not just designed to look good. It is also very functional. The back of the podium features a shelf for added storage. The compartment inside the Presidential Podium is very roomy.

Barack Obama Presidential PodiumThe base of the podium conceals a couple of hidden rear casters. This makes the Presidential Podium easy to tilt back and move around. It weighs in at 250 pounds shipped, so the casters are definitely a huge plus.

The top of the Presidential Podium has a dropdown surface. This allows the speaker to adjust the surface from an angled to a flat surface. This is especially ideal for people who want to use a laptop on the podium. The podium itself measures in at 50 ½” high, 26 ½” at the widest point and is 23 ¾” deep.

If you are looking for a podium that is well built and designed to easily last for years, this may be a good option for you. I certainly consider it to be one of the highest-quality podiums around.

You can find the Executive Wood Presidential Podium here. You can find our entire selection of wooden office podiums here. The Presidential Podium is also available with a built-in speaker, amplifier and microphones as the Presidential Evolution Podium found here.
