I colored various components including the side button nuts, the joystick covers, and the button plug using white plastic paint to keep with the theme.
Since the oak grains were still prominent in the finish, I decided not to bother with trying to get a flat surface; a filler would have been needed early to get a flat surface with oak.
I lined them up to cut at 45 degrees and the same needed sizes and they came out surprisingly great. Since the design is simple, not many different ingredients go into the controller, but some added carving work is needed.
It would have been better if I used some wax paper or something like that. I wanted the controller to be very small, so I trimmed the base of the cores.
I clamped them together and made four pilots holes and a cord hole through them. The wiring would all be linked using solder since there is no room for terminals.
It can be done with planing, but in this build the slants will be cut. I spray painted the control panel Idiot box. Now I linked all the signals and grounds to the buttons.
First I got rid of most the attaching solder using braid and flux paste, then I pulled them out with some force. I sprayed the controller all over from a distance with black spray paint. The grains in the sides continued bleeding stain throughout the day I let it dry, so I had to wipe it clean sometimes.
I decided not to bother making room for the LS yellow gate. There is no needs to be exact in the placement of the diagonal cuts, just needing parts to be as thick and thin as the ends of the final pieces. I used a template bit and some tape to route the shapes for the top and bottom acrylic panels.
Some of the steps can be done with different tools, but I would not recommend attempting this kind of build if you are new to woodworking; yet it might be easier for others with the instructions given here that I had to compile and exploit in making this controller.
I made a dowel placement template by drilling a perpendicular hole near the corner of a board using a drill press. Drilling the top panels was not as easy. Since the back of the box was not quite flush with the sides, I put some masking tape on the sides and sanded the back even with them.
I proceeded to wire the controller as usual. A limited to just ten units, it includes a mini-bar with Zappa whiskey glasses! It did not work very well on many attempts.
I spray painted it white, making sure to keep the spray can moving and not within 12" from the panel you do not want uneven paint on something that you want completely even and flat.
Cutting acrylic is very easy this way. It can be done with planing, but in this build the slants will be cut.
I sanded the sides down to grit. I could now drill the main holes for the joystick and buttons, all using a 24mm forstner bit. Using my 24mm and 30mm hole saws in my drill press, I very slowly cut each hole for the buttons and joystick in the acrylic.box - Traduzione del vocabolo e dei suoi composti, e discussioni del forum.
