Arcade Cabinet build from scratch in MDF and Plexi
 
Normally I do a lot of home improvement projects, but this was something I have wanted to build for years. So I decided to build it from scratch in MDF and plexi. I really like the result myself:

I made a homepage with pictures of the whole project from the beginning and work drawings. Hope this could inspire others :D

That is wicked cool. Got a quick link to what games you can get? I don't know much about MAME

I thought of restoring a old arcade cabinet, but couldn't find a cheap one, so I decided to make one from scratch instead :)

For shame chris. What kind of tease is that picture? :)

Sorry was editing like crazy.... Mine is not 100% complete yet, still need to finish marquee, and add coin door, and as you can see I went for the 4 player option... my kids love this thing... and so do the chicks. :)

4-player setup :D You can't beat the fun in 4 people bashing buttons like there is no tomorrow. I would love to try your setup :D

The simpsons and gauntlet are awesome, BTW, your machine looks really good, I ended up just using a textured spray paint, the pictures do not do it justice... Invest in a real arcade monitor also, it makes ALL the difference...

Control Panels
 
In case anyone was wondering how the control panels were wired, here you go...

How about the side art ? Where you all getting them ?

Chris75, nice wiring !!

chris75 02-23-2008 11:24 AM

Thats for whoever resized my photos, I've seen sideart on all kinds of mame related websites...

lokesen 02-23-2008 11:53 AM

I made the artwork in Adobe Illustrator, but the side art i actually made from two door posters.

Is your sideart a picture of Lion-O?
