How does one make custom interior trim pieces?

How does one make custom interior trim pieces like this ashtray thing:

I've searched the forums and entire internet, can't find this info and figured this would be as good a place as any to ask. I'd like to make a similar ashtray faceplate for an Audison Bit One DRC... or is this kind of thing a trade secret? I was thinking maybe MDF or aluminum for the frame and vinyl wrap to cover it?

Looks like ABS or plexi. Just need to make a template for the hole and go from there.
