The PlayStation 5 has repeatedly faced a replenishment dilemma, and that has kind of increased its value. The gaming console is ahead of the Xbox Series X in terms of design, and DIY pro Matthew Perks, who runs a YouTube channel (DIY Perks) has just taken the console’s fame to another level.
Bringing back the nostalgia of the 1970s to the present day, the Limited Edition PS5 console is as exclusive as your gaming console can be. The DIYer encapsulated the Sony game console in American dark walnut hardwood with tapered metal legs.
DIY niche that hides PS5 DNA
To the unassuming eye, at first glance, it wouldn’t even look like a game console. A makeover that would go perfectly with your modern entertainment lair. DIY Perks took out all of the internal components of the PS5 and locked them in the finished hardwood case.
The DIY console even has a head start over the stock console as it has the custom cooling system (heat sink) – great for avid gamers who can play games for hours at the end. The new chocolaty look hides the carbon fiber baseplate with hexagonal patterns that give the console a certain degree of sturdiness.
Suitable for entertainment setup
The warm retro vibe of the console contrasts with the carbon fiber – designed for someone who appreciates vintage stuff. This is indeed a special PS5 that required meticulous CNC machining and wood sanding to achieve the final finish.
Unfortunately, this is a unique build, and the only chance to get one in your living room is to try and build it yourself. With the right tools and skills to match – this DIY is a fun project for a creative gamer. Imagine something like this perfectly matched with your warm home decor.
