Make a female mold for each shape you need. Then you do a lay-up with the glass and resin. When the part(s) are done, trim to fit, assemble, and glass them together into an assembly.

To make the female mold, it's typical to make a male sample part (prototype) from wood, or plaster, or clay or whatever. Then you make the female tool from the sample part.

Try these links, although most are mainly about custom audio boxes, the same can be applied to a custom console for any purpose:
