Giveaway: Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

By: on April 07, 2014

This Nintendo controller won't help you navigate Link through the dungeons of Hyrule, but it will help you navigate beer and Cheetos from knee level to your mouth. Enter to win a premium hardwood old school Nintendo controller coffee table handmade by Charles Lushear of Bohemian Workbench (a $395 value)!

This giveaway is open to US residents only.

About the Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

In all of his terrifically whimsical hardwood throwbacks, Charles Lushear of Bohemian Workbench eschews CNC machines and computers, assistants and oompa loompas, in favor of his hands. He designed the coffee table up for grabs here after Nintendo's classic 1985 controller, and built it in his Venice Beach workshop from solid, charmingly-paired walnut, mahogany, curly maple, and birdseye maple woods. In other words, Lushear has turned an idea that could have materialized as gimmicky and suitable only for a game room or the foot of a kid's race car bed into a neat and respectable piece of furniture any NES fan can be proud to display in the living room.

The Nintendo controller coffee table comes with a glass top to protect its raised buttons and provide a smooth, usable surface. It has rounded metal legs, which Lushear recommends placing only on carpeted floors or area rugs. Measurements are 30-1/2" long x 13-3/8" tall x 17" deep.

Get a Nintendo Controller Coffee Table Now

If you need finely-crafted NES in your house right now, or feel like you aren't due to win anything for a while after scoring that free prostate exam at your kid's middle school raffle last week, head over to Bohemian Workbench's Etsy shop to purchase your Nintendo controller coffee table at any time.

Once there, you might also notice that Lushear has several other NES tables to choose from, including a few that up the ante with complete controller functionality, in both old school Nintendo and Wii versions. He even has a (non-working) steampunk interpretation.

If you're just in the mood for geekery gazing, the Bohemian Workbench gallery contains Lushear's complete line of works, including nifty nods to Batman and Elmo.
