c_mon's Wooden DreamcastP...

Post by c_mon » Fri Aug 12, 2011 4:25 pm

I made this as a commission work. It took two weeks to finish. I think I made a good job for my first attempt to portablise a Dreamcast. I liked the feel while testing it. It is now sent to its owner.

Specs are:

* CNC-cut&engraved wooden case painted with yacht varnish,
* Sony PSOne screen with led mod,
* Official logo both engraved at the back and pasted on the front,
* Design -somehow- looks like an official Dreamcast controller,
* 7.4v li-ion battery pack,
* Official controller's guts used inside,
* Two regulators used one of which is 7805 to feed the system,
* Built-in VMU,
* Re-designed heatsink that seemed very efficient,
* Hard-wired daughterboard,
* All unnecessary ports desoldered by heatgun..

Pics are awefully large, but otherwise it's absolutly beautiful! I love the engraving around the buttons!
