This media center was built for a special needs class in the city of Lancaster. Students will use this table to listen to music for educational purposes and as a reward. This table was built for the Fall 2009 Sawdust Chronicles Build Challenge. The table is made of Red Oak with Walnut and Ebony inlays. The table has mortise and tenon joinery with oak pegs through the tenons for strength and capped with Ebony plugs. The shelf on the top will house CD players with headphone storage below. The router carving on the side was done with a router, chisels, files and rasps. This was my first serious project that involved my first trip to a hardwood dealer (oh all the glorious wood). I think the school and the kids will like it. I video-taped the building of this and I am thinking about making a podcast out of it. More to come later.
