    So after some hype on social media, I decided to release my initial idea for this project. I am calling it "the Arcade" !!!

    First I cut some wood, and will have a video on youtube showing that process that I will share here soon.

    Next step was to begin dry fit assembly so I can take some more measurements.

    First we create the base, that has 4 casters, two are locking to hold the unit in place. This is very sturdy, each caster can hold 250lbs. I even tested the unit by standing on it like a skateboard.




    So I started with my wood dowel bit and dowels that will eventually hold everything together.










    Next I used this countersink bit to hide the screw heads





    And we have the bottom cabinet






    Then I freehand drew the top cutout. After I was happy with the shape I took careful measurements, and made the lines straight. Then I cut one side, and laid it upside down to trace to cut the other side so they were exact.











    That is all for now, will have more soon!

    Some more updates for you guys!

    First I have created the top portion of the cabinet, had to match the angles appropriately.

    I used my clamps to hold everything together while I drilled holes for screws and countersunk them into the cabinet to hide everything.



    Next I marked and drilled holes for the speakers to show through.


    Here you can see some of the edges of the wood rounded, and also the speakers, and tower 900.



    Here we see the mini NES Classic that will be integrated.



    And finally we have the monitor mounted inside the cabinet.



    Will have more updates soon!
