Here is one that I had intended on keeping for myself. However I ended up trading this for some nice wood for more projects. The sides of the case have a slight slope to them compounding the mitered corners. Getting the angles on this took several trial cuts that I did using MDF before committing to the lacewood. This returned a surprise bonus in the corner with the grain pattern after routing with a 1/2” round over bit. The rays have a little upswing to them and I lucked out in getting this in all four corners.
The controls are real arcade joystick and buttons with handmade wood accents. The top is 1/8” shop made veneers laminated to a sandpaper substrate then screwed into place on the 4 corners with a 1/2” MDF support. The lacewood was finished using several coats of tung oil.
Thanks for viewing and you comments.
