I completed a table for my tube amp and turntable. It’s quarter sawn white oak with zebra wood. There is a cavity to house various stuff out of sight.

This is really great. You made the speaker boxes, too?

Wow, You must have some really big CD’s … look at the size of that CD player … and why the glass jars on the amp.
Ok, ok, ... just pulling your leg … Beautiful addition to the household furniture, and for such a purest sound buff, you have crowned your passion.

Thanks. Ya’ll are too kind.

It wasn’t too difficult to build….if you have a Festool Domino.

Here’s a problem I ran into and it really surprised me.
The zebra wood pieces cupped severely immediately after I resawed the pieces in the band saw. As such I spent a lot of “quality time” with my bench planes. Should I re-sawn before crosscutting?

Any suggestions on how to prevent or remediate this will be appreciated.

Zebrawood loves to twist and cup when it gets worked. Especially when it’s thinner. When I work with 8/4 zebrawood I never see this problem. Plane a board down to 1/2” and watch it go crazy.

Very nice work. good to know about zebra wood. However, I really loved the crazy woods in the cabinets and walls of the shop too.

-- Once the dust settles, breath and behold the beauty of the wood.
