Title: Donkey Kong Control Panel. Is it anything more than just a plank ?
Post by: Level42 on September 12, 2010, 10:08:08 PM
Since I plan on converting my MB into a DK I will have to also replace the CP.

The MB CP is all metal. We all know that the DK is wood, and from what I've seen it's simply a plank and not much more. Am I right, or are there any ridges or special edges I would have to router ?

It is indeed just a plank of wood. Here are some pictures, maybe they will help.

ridge for the t-molding

Some 'cut out' at the back which slides under the monitor side.
I could measure it if needed

Thanks !!

That's too much routing etc. for my taste. I just saw that even Scr33n used a real one.....

Going to look for one...
