Sturdy yet light weight
Potential weak spot at the mounting plate
The product provides four screws to mount the top onto the mounting plate, but the plate actually has eight holes. I would recommend anchoring the plate onto the top with an adhesive (like epoxy) and with four more screws. The extra strength should make this lectern last. Other than this one area, the lectern feels remarkably sturdy and is not top heavy. The price makes it right for me to pass up more expensive lecterns.
