    Yup. I started by cutting cardboard to the angle I wanted to get the side profile. Cut the side boards a couple times to fine tune it, the last time I just free hand angled the bevel for the hump, and hit with a belt sander to smooth and fine tune.
    I had a piece of wood with a groove in it so I just put pegboard with contact paper on it in the groove and used two chunks of 1 in dowel to hold it together.
    I stained it but didn't like the look so I went over that with contact paper. Then clear coated the contact with Krylon gloss.

    I cut up a couple of store consoles to add to it. The close ups show what a POS it is, but the good news is in the car nobody notices! So don't knock yourself out being too perfect, it is too low to see flaws!

    Someday I might rework it a little but for now it holds my junk, look decent, and is open under it to not block rear heat.
