Modding a console's frame?

    I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience in modding a console's chassis/frame. Let's say swapping the black surround on a console for wood, or rewrapping it at least.

    For example:
    The black surround here

    Into something maybe with this feel.

    Or maybe like a trident,

    Do you get what I'm saying? Even putting it in a desk similar to this would be nice.

    Anyone?

    Check Max's thread" Finally the saga begins" in the construction forum and look at his pictures of the desk he built for his stuff. Ask questions....read the text....He's a guy who knows how to wrap things in woody surfaces.

    I've looked into building a full desk for my console, that I can do. It's the wrap that I am wondering about. I'll definitely take a look at that thread again though.

    Thanks
