This is a table made for a friend whose daughter is a big fan of the Star Wars movies. She has a large, collectible model of the Millennium Falcon and will use this table to display it.
The sides are adjustable bookshelves and the center has a pull-out magazine rack.
Material is red oak stained Mahogany. Blue LED light strips (with a dimmer) are inset around the top to illuminate the model. The top is black glass tile with black RTV in the seams as I was afraid that grout would crack. The top simply lays on the base with some locating strips – the tile made the top very heavy, so I wanted it to be removable for transport.
