This particular case made the rounds last year, but the design is timeless. Well, perhaps timeless is the wrong word to use. It's definitely got a sort of 50's vibe to it, that odd mixture of natural wood and cutting-edge (at the time) technology that threatened to transform our homes into buzzing bio-electronic hives.
I love the look, personally. It reminds me of the enormous television we had at home when I was a child, encased in its own wooden console. So many times I found myself lying behind it with a screwdriver, staring at the pattern of circular holes cut into the pressboard as I unhooked our cable box to connect my Atari 2600.
You ruined everything, plastic.
Hulten even managed to work up his own little 1960's-style ad for his creation. Sexy, isn't it?
I highly recommend visiting Hulten's website to check out his other creations. His custom Mame cabinet has to be seen to be believed.
