Musical Furnishings: Xylophone coffee table
You guys are NOT going to believe this...

My sister and I were "value" shopping on Saturday, after rain put a crimp on our plans for the local strawberry festival. First on the plate was a swap meet, where I got a good K&N filter to replace my DR-Z's airbox. Since that venue only had a few vendors, we went on up to the Goodwill. That's when we saw it!

I won't say what I paid, and frankly, I'd love to keep it. My problem stems from too little room and too much fun stuff - like bikes! Plus, I'm trying to help my sister by splitting any profits.

This is a "Duet" table from Musical Furnishings. The brand on the bottom of the table states that it originated from Olympia; however, the manufacturer appears to reside in Portland. Condition is 9/10, showing almost zero flaws - no chipped edges, and no obvious stains. There are a couple of minor blems, about the size of a pencil head on one of the keys that may just be part of the wood grain. I'll have some high quality shots of the actual item up tonight.




Both sides of the table will play independently. The 13 keys (26 total) are each hand-tuned to whole steps in the key of 'C.' I am including a pair of felt mallets that were purchased new yesterday. Since getting the table home, I haven't yet put the legs on for a test go, but the sound is absolutely delightful.

This table is a custom piece that has a one-month lead time to purchase new. Listed on the manufacturer's website at $1900, I will sell for $1200.

I'll give you $20 and a six-pack of Schlitz...provided I can find one, since its vintage up-cycled steampunk beer, yaknow...well worth over $1500 to the right hipster.

That was my wife's suggestion: she thought it was cool, but only $200 worth!



Good luck with the sale!

All of you must buy cheap furniture. The highest "offer" on this thread isn't enough to buy a solid-top, natural wood coffee table, let alone a hand-made musical instrument!

Plus selling it for a huge proffit when you bought it from the goodwill..i will assume you paid.......$200 TOPS for it. How about since your having buyers remorce ya tell us what ya paid for it and we can offer from there ..you will most likely make a proffit but not 1200

how about not ripping on the asking price, but contacting the OP via PM to tell him what you think. Yes, most folks here are being funny with their offers and not meaning to poke at the OP, but it's borderline violating classified rules.

Just thinking about the kids constantly pounding on that thing gives me a headache... Cool as hell though and definitely not something you see the Jones' with...
