Nes Coffee Table

Post by drws » Fri May 09, 2008 4:48 pm

Looking at this guys site and his excellent (working) NES coffee table
I noticed he's also a RG reader!

Worth contacting the guy for a mini article? (Unless he's a forumite I don't know about)

For a games room perhaps. But having it as a coffee table would be extremely distasteful.

The inner geek shouts "this is awesome!" but I clobber him down with the bat of good taste.
