End Tables with Hidden Subwoofer

In an effort to increase the wife approval factor of my large home theater speakers, I decided to build the subwoofers into a pair of end tables to match the wood of our entertainment center that I had built previously.

The boxes are built out of 3/4 inch mdf with Cocobolo trim, figured Maple veneer and a granite inlayed top.

Sweet. Looks like something I can’t live without.

wow, nice looking boxes. Is the stone inlay caulked in or how do you keep it from rattling?

Looks awesome…this has been a project I have been wanting to build for a long time. I have a Adire Shiva sitting in the box still.

Very nice work. Great choice of wood/veneer combination.

Very nice. I have a large black subwoofer that I need to disguise. Were these pre existing factory built sub woofers? Did you notice any difference in sound quality after you re-fitted it?
