Using the electronics from a Gameboy color I was able to make this completely functional Walnut Gameboy. The construction consisted of carving away most of the material using a drill press, router, and dremel tool. Coping saw, files, chisel and sand paper were used for detail.

Currently the game functions, but I hope to replace the screen guard because it is very scratched up, replace the speaker, and figure out volume control.

The modifications I made were replacing the screen with a backlit screen and adding a rechargeable battery with charging board. I followed these tutorials to do that.

This is awesome! The proportions look a little off to me, but very nicely done, and the wood is gorgeous. I like your upgrades too. One of my bucket list items, but perhaps an NES or SNES. Nice work.

Oh, and the video was great too. Thanks for sharing.

Really cool! What kind of finish did you apply to the walnut? That is a beautiful section of grain you were able to capture.
