Hey guys, first of all thanks for all of the help iv received so far in the past!
What Im doing is building a 8:1 replica of a Regular Nintendo (NES) controller and making it into a coffee table that you can actually use with a Nintendo. One thing I am trying to figure out is, is it worth the time to do what I want to do with the trim or not, and if it will look good.
Here is what I have done so far. I have the button holes cut out so now I am building the trim:
Obviously the trim isnt done being shaped but after it is done, I will need to know how to proceed next. Right now the 1/4" MDF is too tall to be "to scale" so im seeing what my options are for making it to scale; this part will be more of a guesstimate. Since it is too thick, what I am thinking of doing is routing out a slot on the face of the table for the trim to slide into to lower the thickness that shows on the face of the table. Is this a good idea or are there other options?
If I route out a slot, there will be edges around the trim where there will be space; can I just use regular interior wood filler for this?
Thanks for all the help!
