Table design

I am beginning to design a table based on my experiments with surface transducers. Here is a preliminary grasshopper study where the points in the image act as positions for each surface transducer. The relationship is set up that there are 2 “low” frequency speakers, 2 “mid” frequency, and 2 “high” frequency speakers, where the thicker the material, the high pitch frequencies will be pronounced. Inversely the thinner the material is the lower the frequencies will be that are pronounced.

Some references that I am using right now:

http://www.ukuleles.com/Technology/woodprop.html - Young’s modulus for different species of wood (elasticity)

http://www.answers.com/topic/wood-properties - An outline and general knowledge of the physical properties of wood
