The appearance of PS5 is only the following black and white colors at the time of article creation. Therefore, it seems that there is a high demand for changing the appearance, such as the appearance of replacement plates ' Darkplates' for transforming PS5 into black from a third party.
DIY Perks also came up with the idea of changing the look of the PS5 to something more stylish, and chose to use brass for that.
The reason for choosing brass as the material is that brass is easy to process and relatively inexpensive, and has been used for various things since ancient times.

Then, by heating with a burner, the brass plate is processed so that it has a curved surface according to the mold.
The brass plate maintains a curved surface along the crate even when the weight is removed.
However, probably because it was heated at too high a temperature, the wooden frame was burnt and the upper side of the brass plate became dirty.
Therefore, cover the claws on the back side of the side plate with clay ...
