This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

For one thing. You probably don't want to use Command+T for terminal. It is used in many apps. – Wuffers Feb 28 '11 at 5:07
@Mark You're right. The key is bound to many apps. – Eonil Feb 28 '11 at 6:40

Use Automator to create a service that launches Terminal, and then assign your keyboard shortcut from System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Services.
