Playstation Controller Coffee Table

September 6, 2010, By Christian Davis

This is cool and I want one.

Australian student Mark M. made this coffee table as a high school capstone project.  Below, Mark gives some insight on the process of making the table.

I made the whole controller out of Plywood, MDF and Veneer on Veneer. I used the MDF for the R and L legs and the Veneer on Veneer for the 2 analogue joysticks as the 6mm Bendy Plywood wouldn’t bend around such a small diameter. To bend around the Handles I used 6mm Bendy Plywood. To give the finish of the playstation controller coffee table I used polyurethane full gloss finish. I used White gloss for the whole controller and the Black gloss for the Buttons.

Why this isn’t sold at Ikea already I have no idea. A slue of controller themed tables  would be a great idea.

The whole project took me 20 weeks on and off during school time, in and out of class. Besides the fact that I needed to build something for my major year 12 project, I wanted to build something different and unique, giving me the most marks possible. At this very time it is getting marked for my High school Certificate (Year 12). So once the results come in I’ll let you know how I go, I’m hoping to top the state. Hope you like it.

We do like it Mark. We like it a lot.
