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. This is my 3rd iteration of these consoles. I have now added the little wood dust covers that sit on the top of the lid and keep dust from going into the system.

#3 has a Triforce carving and is made out of cherry, red heart, and a walnut bottom. #4 has a Metroid carving and is made out of ambrosia maple, wenge, and has a bubinga bottom.

The whole thing is finished with a layer of dewaxed shellac followed by 3 layers of General Finished poly acrylic satin.

Comments and questions are welcome!

Pretty cool way to go retro.
