Traditional Amud Tefillah Podium

The amud tefillah is a podium used as a prayer stand by rabbis and cantors.  The amud traditionally stands to the right and left of the torah ark.  The wood lecturn is built from African walnut wood and features lathed half columns between the doors, which access the storage beneath.  The top has a flat section for a menorah or candles and flips open for top storage.

Custom Work

Custom work is produced according to the style, functional needs, and budget of our clients. For each custom project we provide a detailed design rendering and shop sketches with measurements. We will continue to revise the design until completely satisfied with the details and budgeting, before beginning production. Our clients accept the artistic nature of our work, in that Bass Furniture craftsmen may make decisions and minor interpretive adjustments to the design that allow us to complete the work to the best of our ability and our understanding of the project.
