Two Wonderfully Nerdy Coffee Tables

 First, the Pac-Man table. Kiran says: "I make a range of stuff from tables to lamps and beyond. I recently started my first retro range, and have just completed an 80s gaming table, based on an old electronic game that we all know and love! I have the table listed on Folksy with a few of my other items too. It is £225."

For the gaming enthusiast with much deeper pockets, I present to you the NES Controller table. Etsy seller TheBohemianWorkbench combines fine joinery with fine nerdery and comes up with a beautiful, handmade wooden coffee table that resembles a giant NES controller, and which functions as a NES controller as well. It's available for $3,500 from his Venice, CA studio (pickup preferred).
Nintendo NES controller coffee table. Made from maple, mahogany and walnut with dovetail joinery and mid century modern legs.
This table fully functions as a Nintendo NES controller and can be used to play games with the glass removed. The cord is retractable from underneath. The demonstration video is currently being produced and will be posted soon.


  1. I guess - I know exactly dick about different wood types, but it looks nice to me.
