Atari Joystick Jewelry Box: 8-Bit Fashion

 |  |  |  |  |  March 29, 2011

While I don’t really need a jewelry box, I have to say that this one does look pretty awesome. It’s perfect for the retro gamer geek or geekette to store jewelry and other stuff that needs to be hidden away.

Instructables contributor Anna Howard Shaw created this one for herself, but the Instructable gives a step-by-step process on how you can make one too. You’re basically going to be working with pieces of wood and shaping them into the right form to get your box. The whole box is made out of wood, including walnut and cherry veneer for some of the decorations. Lastly, the box is finished with a stain or shellac to give it that rich color.

Admittedly, you could use this box to store any number of little knick-knacks if you don’t wear jewelry. Or, you could pick up some appropriate jewelry here, like some Pitfall Harry earrings.
