Step 14: Drawers

I had some pine for the drawers kicking about so I cut the back and sides, then cut channels for the drawer runner and base (6mm ply). I put a strip of ply across the front of the drawer to make things a bit easier later. It all got glued together & clamped.

I then made the runners for the drawer from some more softwood I had in the shed...I've always struggled with drawers in the past so totally over engineered em to give as little play as possible, but without being too tight.

Then I made the drawer fronts so there would be about 1mm gap around them and the face rail.
Great job, what happens when I hit up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start?
You get endless lives in Contra :-)
Or 30 extra wings appear before game time.
do you still have the autocad file?
<p>I made a very similar table but sprayed it the colours of the controller this instructable really helped allot thanks :)</p>
<p>This is gorgeous. I really want to do this, but it looks like more time than I have :-(</p>
great instructable . how much does this cost in material to make ?
This is amazing! <br>I am envious of your skill and free time.
Hey, if you ever one night wanted to use it as a controller you could hook it up to a Makey Makey and have a retro night.
I. Love. This. &lt;3 &lt;3
You could've made a secret stash under some of the buttons
Great idea! Something for Mk2 I reckon.
I will look forward to that! <br>Oh, and have the buttons right way around next time? <br> <br> <br>(and i doubt you'd ship to finland, without a giant fee...)
I thought the surface was etched by a laser cutter. After reading all the steps. Thats some skills you have got and it looks amazing.
Very nice work ....
Beautiful work!
Amazing work!!!
This looks fantastic except for one detail:&nbsp;<strong><em>You mixed up the B and A buttons!</em></strong>
i know :( Can't tell you how gutted I was when i realised!
Ouch! But otherwise, yeah, great job.
This is so well done! I'm considering it as a geek investment, I'm in Canada though and the shipping would be a mint. Is this the same one you have for sale?
looks great!
Thanks for all the positive feedback! A lot of love went into the details, and I hope it shows.
Gorgeous piece! Makes me wish I had a thickness planer to do tabletops.
Really great! Thanks for sharing!
I'm just jealous, you still have a system. Great table! <br>
Sweet! <br>
Whoa! That looks amazing! All of the details are just perfect!
