Gamecube Reliquary 2 by Cmr8286 Gamecube Reliquary 2 by Cmr8286
This is a little piece I did last semester for a Woodworking elective. The assignment was to build a table or reliquary, and I had had the idea of doing something to hold a Gamecube for a while. The concept is sort of a throwback to the days when consumer electronics, such as turntables and phonographs, were housed in huge chest-like cabinets.
It is made entirely out of ash, using mortise-and-tenon joints. It is fully functional and currently holds my Gamecube, making a nice addition to the other maple furniture in my apartment.

nice! You could make a market on these. What about some hangers/shelves for the controllers?

That is incredibly sexy!
What a cool idea. Too bad most new game consoles have all this intense over heating precautions to consider.

I'd totally love to make/have one.

OMG, I remember when electronics were in giant cabinets. What a classy little updated version of those monstrosities!

You're probably not aware of a magazine called NGamer, but over here in the UK it is very popular and it's all about Gamecube/DS/Wii.... (it's the only magazine I read for Nintendo information and reviews.) They have a small section with the link to this pic in it!! :D Pretty cool, huh? Just thought I'd let you know.

Wow, that's pretty damn impressive!!!

I'm a little interested if the system can stay cool in there? I notice you have cooling holes in the wood, but is that enough to keep it fully cool? I'm only asking, cause my cube seems to get quite hot when i have ANYTHING around it.

Excellent design. Just amazingly done. If I had the space for one of these and say, some blueprints, it'd be something I would love to have in my room, right next to my gaming drawer stuffed with Nintendo games.

Nice and neat. Ideal if you don't like the space-age black and silver theme the system has going on...Very stylish.
