That's a good question. No, I haven't built one - but I'm in the
middle of some heavy woodwork for a relation, so it seems entirely
possible to do something like this...and lord knows, I love working
with computers/hardware and could get a decent system together as the
heart of the cabinet. Plus it would sit nicely downstairs, next to my
landlord's Rocky Horror slot machine hehe
(top left picture)
We did actually have two slot machines in this house, but one fell
beyond repair *and* a housemate has recently left (slot machine noise
unrelated :) so a double bedroom is spare to turn into an arcade lol.
We already have an XBox360 and a PS2 in there with 28 inch TV.
Basically, I'm a games fiend and used to spend an obscene amount of
money in the arcades whenever we went on holiday, spanning back
decades. Great days.
(Skegness Pier arcade ruled, if anyone's been there)
Thats a neat looking machine.
I am an electrician by trade, never considered myself as much of a carpenter. But I am getting better at it, although making angle cuts work out right is still a nightmare for me.
Just know ahead of time that you are in for a lot of work, but since you are already doing some woodwork, it may not be much of a job at all for you.
Some people collect old arcade machines.
Some have even converted the old cabs to Mame machines.
I thought about going that route, but Im about half a mile away from the middle of no where, so for me to find an old arcade machine for sale (within reasonable driving range) would be a chore in itself.
Anyway, good luck, and keep us informed when you do decide to build one.
Also keep checking back at my blog, Im trying to keep it updated as the work on The Rage progresses.
