You can now defeat Bowser literally right from your coffee table with giant built in buttons!

Well, this is an interesting creation from Charles Lushear: a fully-functional Nintendo Controller Coffee Table. Now you can defeat Bowser literally right from your coffee table with giant built in buttons... simply plug into an existing classic NES system, and you are ready to go!

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 on youtube and bohoworkbench.com

Dimensions: 42" length x 18.25" width x 18" height

Shipping available for additional fee. Please contact us for shipping rates prior to purchase. Local pick up preferred.

4 versions of the table are available to better suit various preferences and budgets. The main differences are composite materials vs premium hardwoods and functional vs nonfunctional. The composite materials version are painted to look exactly like the original controller. An inverted color scheme version is currently being designed. USB capability also available.

The Boho Workbench specializes in unique creations that demand conversation. Whether you have an idea in mind or have noticed something that you like and want produced, we'd be happy to discuss creating it for you. You're imagination is the limit.

Well, sadly this isn't cheap. Can be yours for $3500, and you have to order it first so it can be made (production time is 4-6 weeks).

Now, we want a Wii Remote one (and of course, cheaper than this one)!
