It is not hard to build a console. first make a mock up of the design you want out of cardboard.
after you get it just the way you want it you can go two or three ways depending on what your tastes are.
First is after you have the cardboard mock up done you can just fiberglass that and then smooth it and you are done or you can use the the mockup as a template and cut metal and weld it together
or use the mock up and builsd it out of nice hard wood for that classic touch.
I have built them all three way and even out of ABS plastic and colored plexi glass. the plexiglass looks great but took the longest due to polishing the edges and scroll work that the customer wanted.

thanks meanmachine/i'll probably try to make it out of wood, since i'm not good at welding or glassing. i would rather cover it with the same material that my interior is covered in, so maybe i'll give that a try/
