This sophisticated set-up lets even amateur disc jockeys rock the house.

Materials and Tools:

three 4x8 sheets of 3/4-inch birch plywood
cherry molding
one can of cherry stain
carpenter's glue
lazy Susan disc
varnish
pneumatic nailer
air compressor
drill driver
table saw
birch edge banding
iron
T-square
tape measure

Steps:

  1. Start by measuring out the length, width and height of DJ table. Our table's measurements were 36" long, 24" wide, and 34-1/2" high. Measure and cut the birch plywood to create the frame for the DJ table.
  2. Measure and cut shelving out of birch plywood for a shelf to fit inside the DJ table.
  3. Stain to the plywood before building the unit. When applying the stain, wipe off any excess using cloths and let dry.
  4. Using carpenter's glue and a pneumatic nailer, assemble frame for table. Measure and mark where the shelf will sit. On the back of the frame, use the T-square to determine the center line for the shelves, and draw a faint line to mark it.
  5. Apply wood glue to the shelf and drop the shelf into place before you start to nail. Use the center line you drew as a guide. Making sure the shelf is flush, nail directly into the center so that the nail doesn't split the wood.
  6. Measure and cut a small cherry edge piece across the front to act as a load carrier on the shelves. Apply birch edge banding to the front edges of the table to cover rough edges of birch plywood using an iron.
  7. To attach the top, apply glue to the top edges of the unit. Place the top, making sure it is flush at all the corners. Then nail the top into place. (There are actually two tops to this unit, this top and then the top which will allow the lazy Susan to spin around.) Move on to finish the bottom section.
  8. Install the lazy Susan disk on top of the frame on center line. Measure and cut a second piece of plywood the same size as the top, and stain it. Attach it to the lazy Susan.
  9. Give the table a coat of polyurethane.
