I have never before in my life used a custom skin or case on any console I have ever owned. I usually find them either tacky, cheap, or ill-fitting. This would have remained the case for the foreseeable future if I hadn’t been contacted by Toast Made and offered a free custom wood skin. Being a sucker for the look of wood, I jumped at the chance.
About a week or so later I received a custom cover for my PlayStation 4. You can choose for various colors and style of wood for your cover; I opted for the dark oak. They also offer a custom design to be added to your cover, and of course I couldn’t pass that up. I opened my the packaging to reveal my custom cover, adorned with what I consider to be my logo. Instantly I was amazed by the quality and sharpness of the wood etching.
Sliced into various sized pieces rather than being a fully assembled case, you are instructed to apply the parts in a certain order to the different sides of your console. At first this seemed almost certainly destined to be a hassle. Luckily it turned out to be fairly easy due to the very detailed and easy to follow instructions, and topped by the fact that the adhesive used allows for adjustment if done within the first few minutes of application. The final result turned out to be extremely impressive in my opinion.
Some may be wondering if this can be removed without damage to the system itself. While I haven’t attempted to remove the cover yet, I was told by the designers that it was created to be removed without leaving marks or residue. This can be made even easier with the use of a hair dryer.
Overall the skins Toast Made produces are extremely high quality and stylish. The various wood colors and styles can fit nearly any décor and really helps give your console its very own look.
While I opted for the PS4 cover, they also make covers for every other current gen console as well as the usual phone and laptops.
