This one took me a surprising amount of time but I am so happy to have it done! I took an old Nintendo Entertainment System top loader design and gutted the parts. I then built and replicated the old classic front loader design and installed it so this thing is 100% functional. I put hinges and a clasp on the front so I can pop it open whenever I want. I also spent a lot of time engraving the mario and nintendo sign in the top.
Top is made from Canary wood with a Pau Rosa stripe. Bottom half is made from Jatoba and a black Wenge middle trim.
The two holes are for the power and reset buttons which I am currently turning on my lathe! Still need to get a few original style controllers and am contemplating making them out of wood….
