The Kong is in

I can’t forget my Donkey Kong days so this hack is especially heart warming. Casey pays homage to the game with some ingenious tilted Lack shelves.

“Here’s a little project I came up with using some Lack shelves to add some flair to my game room. Using some tape, paint, and a lazy afternoon I put together a Donkey Kong homage to keep my old systems on. The ladders were made from 1/4″ square wood and the barrels are beer cans painted.”

    I loved that game too, this brings back some great memories. I also like the ladder supports for the slanted shelves, very well done.

    Totally awesome, I am green with envy. Though not as envious as you might be when you hear I have a 1982 Donkey Kong Game and Watch, and it’s still in working order (*sticks out tongue in triumph; forgets she is 35*)
