I love it! :thumbsup:
 

I say leave it like it is! :-D :) There's an understated elegance about it--very modern. Maybe play with different stains/finishes or button colors, but anything extra would just throw off the clean lines of it IMO; my only suggestion would be to place the buttons perpendicularly with the edge of the base so they're straight, but that's more of an OCD thing. :-D

 

Thank you for the feedback! I was think of carving the CX number on the bottom; it wouldn't be noticeable. It's super hard picking a CX number. So many are taken :P

 

I've got ebony and zebra wood up next. I want each family member to have their own. :)

Here is a shot of the base.

 

Future models will have countersunk screws and copper sleeves in the base, so that you can attach & remove the cover as often as you like. The prototype has a 4 way/8 way stick. I like changing it, depending on the game. Pacman with a 4 way stick feels great :)
