Nintendo 64


Much like counting the rings on a tree, you an determine the age of a geek by whether or not their first home console had wood paneling. These days it’s all molded plastic and metals and the like, which is cheaper though perhaps less interesting to look at.

Apparently console mod enthusiast Marshall Clark agrees – using various paint techniques, he’s created an N64 that looks like it’s made from wood. It’s a pretty bloody convincing effect that looks fantastic.

Check out a video of Marshall’s handiwork below.

This gorgeous custom table pays homage to the classic N64 console with superb craftsmanship and functionality. I would have killed for this as a kid.

Super fan and DIYer, Mark Haggett, built the gaming table of our dreams to honor his favorite console. The wiring and motherboard are embedded directly within the table and he cleverly cut grooves for the controller cables to make the controllers themselves neatly accessible from the couch. The table also includes cartridge shelving, hanging controller storage and warp pipe legs.

His wonderful craftsmanship also afforded the inclusion of an 8-bit wooden block design of Super Mario. It’s really a remarkable piece of nostalgic art.

Check out images from his build after the break.

A good game room needs good game decor and this Nintendo 64 fits the bill perfectly. It’s made of MDF and measures 18″ x 18″ x 18″ and is even painted in the bold, primary colors of the logo. The top is laminated and you could even add a glass top to have plenty of room for your controller, your Mountain Dew, and your bag of Doritos.

The average game console looks perfect and shiny when you first take it out of the box, but in no time it’s a bit dusty and dingy and eventually isn’t much to look at anymore. DeviantArtist Zoki64 has breathed new life into some old consoles like the custom Ocarina of Time Nintendo 64 console above that he did for a commission. He’s got Nintendo 64 consoles and controllers, a Game Boy and even a Super Nintendo that look better than they did when they were new.

Keenan Bosworth gave a lucky friend this custom Nintendo 64 coffee table, which includes an 18″ pine N64 logo as its base. This is actually Keenan’s second example of the table, the first being a Christmas gift for his brother.

Although the table isn’t available for sale, Keenan is in the process of creating an Instructables page for the project and has posted a number of additional photos of the build on his imgur thread.

GoldenEye for the N64 is one of my favorite games of all-time, but the graphics on this fan-made update take it to a whole other level—especially if you found escort missions frustrating.

Star Wars super fan Kevin “CorellianCustoms” Glenn created these two custom console mods consisting of a Rebel Snowspeeder SNES and a TIE Fighter Nintendo 64 – each including their respective controllers, A/V cables and power bricks. If you’ve just fallen in love, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can actually buy these mods from CorrellianCustom’s Etsy page. They may be a little steep at $185 and $210, but my guess is that won’t deter many.
