Nintendo gave GameCube fans a number of different colors to choose from, but they never came up with something like this!
Redditor LordBandimer decided to give his GameCube a custom wooden makeover, and its come out looking extra fancy. LordBandimer says the look was achieved with a veneer layer, which used 1mm thick mahogany on all sides of the GameCube.
As for the embellishments, they were done with a laser cutter.
The top features 2 different 1/8" gold acrylic colors for the Triforce, along with real stone around the edge. The stone is also a thin layer, and was cut with a laser.
Finally, the most important question. Not only does this custom GameCube design look gorgeous, the system still works as well! LordBandimer says that mahogany is a rather porous wood, and when that's combined with how thin the veneer is, there shouldn't be any heat issues at all.
