We first heard whispers of Amazon launching a made by hand store back in the spring as the online retail behemoth considered a run at Etsy. Today, Handmade at Amazon has launched with “thousands of unique products” made from more than 60 countries around the world. Each piece of inventory comes from a factory-free environment as every artisan piece is made without the use of automated machinery.

Since 2005 Etsy has been the go-to place for online shoppers to buy handmade and vintage items. The online marketplace offers one-of-a-kind Jewlery, furniture, decor, clothes, and more. You can even find some insane items like this giant PlayStation controller table. But if a report by The Wall Street Journal is right, Etsy’s reign as top-dog in the online arts and crafts scene may be about to get some big-time competition from Amazon. expand full story

This giant custom PlayStation controller table is ridiculously detailed

A woodworker from South Carolina has put a giant custom wood PlayStation controller table up on Etsy. Take a look at the images and you’ll see just how detailed it is. Every button is present with the correct coloring and it even has a built-in cabinet to store your games. You’d think that being priced at $3,000 it would take a long time to find a buyer, but you’d be wrong.

We spotted this controller earlier this morning and it has already sold. If you can’t live without it, then I’d suggest reaching out to the seller who is currently soliciting custom orders.

Original listing:

My original design patterned after the Playstation 3 gaming controller. The entire piece is constructed from 3/4″ Birch plywood. It features a custom cut 1/2″ tempered glass top with polished edge. The fold down door, opens to a roomy storage area for games, controllers, etc… High quality vinyl decals applied on buttons. 3/4″ clear, Polycarbonate rod used to support front. This is my most complex piece to date. A heavy, solid piece of furniture est. 100 lbs. Finished in flat black with a matte clear final coating to seal and protect.
