 ??? OK, so I'm sort of at a deadlock with myself, I cannot decide on the classic white grey color or with the wood color of the season 14 console and also the TVM console, which were both that stained wood color, so if you all could, please tell me what you like and whichever one gets the highest by the time I'm ready to go to the store and get the supplies for the color wins...so here is a photo reference I made on google sketch up of the difference....

So if you all could, just say which one and I would be pretty happy :)

Hmmm... Classic Series main console look, or TV Movie-esque main console look... Very difficult one to call from those photos. Both versions look good. Can you do a couple of oblique angles with maybe a few panels populated with controls to give us a better idea of what it would look like "finished"? That might make a difference in which version really looks better.

ha, well after looking through all my sketch up consoles (Which is somewhere around I think, 50..) I found this console I was working on a month ago and I then made it the wood color, well ever since I had the basic dimensions of my console, that is what I have been using for my console models, so here is that pic with the controls and its also a side by side, so tell me what you think...

If you plan on doing the wood burning you displayed on your other thread, you should totally go with the stained console.

After seeing these consoles side by side, and reading handofomega's and jarenelo's comments, I have to say I agree with them: wood-stained all the way, especially with the wood-burning decorations planned for the edge.

I don't know if it's a factor, but the stained wood would probably be more difficult. In my experience paint hides a multitude of sins. Still, I think the wood stained one is cooler, and definitely more unique.

well, I think we have a winner! (and I'm sort of too curious to just get one already ;))
WOOD STAIN

so there we go, I already actually had some wood stain that I got when I bought the first set of ply, but now that I will be building the base and that I actually see how big the console is, I think I will maybe need another can..

Very nice.

I'm noticing some similarities to another console on the forums ::)

Looks good though. Keep it up.
