So I have a first-run PlayStation 2, a 30001 series.  I love it desperately, it was my first console ever!  Anyway, it died about a year ago, but I can't bear to part with it.  Surely I could gut it and turn it into something wonderful, right? 

Here's a tiny little picture of it...

You can get a clock making kit and try to make a PS2 Clock.

I am not sure if you can achieve this, but you may want to look up some tutorials and think about it. I mean, what else do you have to loose? Heh.

If that doesn't work, perhaps you can apply a miniature mirror to it, and BAM! PS2 mirror.

Yes, I'm crazy. But hey, they'd make perfect accents for a gamer-geek room. ^_^

Oooh.  I'm liking the clock idea... shouldn't be too hard, either.  Gut it, put a little hole in the face, right over the old PS2 logo... nice!  Anyone have other ideas?

I was talking about doing a clock with hands, but, I've been thinking and I think if there was any possible way to take a digital clock and put it in the ps2, that would be cooler and a bit more fitting.

Another idea is to gut the playstation and maybe some how make a safe or place to hide your stuff, or whatever. Eh, it sounded cooler when I was thinking of it... Heh.

I really really like the clock idea. That would be really cool. I can't think of anything really. I don't remember how big PS2s are, so that's probably something I should look into.

I like the digital clock idea!  Think it could work?...

These old-school PS2's are pretty hefty.  I don't have a ruler on me, but I'd say maybe 11.5 in x 7 in x 3 in or so/

These are my ideas:
a) gut it, put a hinge on the back and make it into a jewelry box or a wall mount cabinet (might have to do some heavy duty cutting)
b) fill it with gravel and make a doorstop
c) cut a hole in the top, fill in all the little holes and make a planter
d)  Lips sealed cut out a rectangle in the top and fit in a tray. you could keep it by your entry way for keys etc. or put it on your coffee table for remotes.

most of my ideas include heavy duty remodeling and/or power tools. good luck!

I'm liking the hinged idea.  I mean, I could do it, I'm moderately sure I have the right tools...

Know what part makes me nervous?  The CD tray.  I guess I could chop it, then glue the face of it back on the outer edge... do you know what I mean?
