Jonathon Hicks of Hicks Custom Furniture recently posted this cool Nintendo Controller Coffee Table project to Instructables.com. (Before you even throw in a Contra unlimited life joke, read the comments!) He breaks it down into 16 Steps — although it’s a few more, if you look closely into each step.
Hicks was inspired to do it himself when he looked into the prices of other NES controller tables found online.
Hicks uses three different species for the three different colors on the NES controller table:
- Oak for Black
- Maple for Grey
- Mahogany for Red
Those are two “push-to-open” drawers in the front of the table, which allowed Hicks to dispense with the handles.
All said it’s a great piece of work, although there’s one glaring error that the maker noticed only after it was too late. Can you spot it?
