1974 was a good year for me!

Welcome to my first posted project! This year for my family's Christmas gift exchange I drew my BIL. A tough one under normal circumstances but throw in a $10.00 limit--down from $50.00 last year--and the new rule that every gift had to be handmade or thrift store finds and I had a conundrum. As I was frantically searching Craftster, blogs and the entire web I saw an old school Nintendo someone had gutted and turned into a box. At the time I saw it it didn't really catch my attention too much. However, a few nights latter I noticed our broken and unrepairable Xbox sitting on a shelf. The wheels started turning and this is what I ended up with. Of course when I went back to find the original inspiration I couldn't find it. BTW--my BIL always packs his lunch

I used one leather belt, some bolts, washers, and nuts, the XBox, and some silver bubble wrap looking insulation I found at my local home improvement store. First I opened the XBox by unscrewing some screws and then I started gutting it. After I got all of the guts out I used a Dremal to clear out all of the bumpy things--official term.  I made hinges, a latch and a handle from the belt that I attached with the nuts, bolts and washers. Finally I lined it with the insulation.
Here's the rest of the pics I took:









Thanks for looking!!!!
