"The Beast's" new console

Recommended Posts

Well, I had to try and make a new console.  Here are some before and after pics.  Turned out a bit better than what I thought it would.  At least I now have 2 large cup holders (big enough for two 32oz. cups or cans/bottles with coolies) and a storage area big enough for my tablet and whatever else I can stuff in it (bigger than the one in a Cherokee console).  Still have enough room to put in a powered 4 port USB hub and one or two 12v outlets.  Made of 3/4" plywood glued and stapled together, all edges rounded over, sealed and primed the sprayed with black bed liner.  Piano hinge at the rear, black "pleather" and 1 1/2" foam for the top.  Cup holders are 3 3/8" diameter by 3" deep (BIG enough).


Measures 26.5" long, 10.5" high (not counting lid/arm rest) and 9.5" wide, just a fit between the '98 XJ seats. What do you think?










Believe it or not, these pictures are of the same MJ (The Beast) just taken with a combination of our Olympus camera and Samsung Galaxy S5.
