Hi my fellow Hyperspinners.
I've been planning to build a cab ever since I discovered Hyperspin. More than a year ago I ordered all the necessary parts for building the cab of my dreams only to discover that the design I went for wouldn't fit through the doors to my apartment and my plans to make it separable would be way to expensive to do in Denmark. Since then I discovered the Vewlix styled cab and instantaneously fell in love. I scoured the web for the perfect plans to fit my needs as well as woodworking abilities.
Some time passed. I kept myself occupied by helping my brother out with his bartop build. Then finally Donnei contacted me regarding a design called the Newlix. A few days later I had the plans in my possession, ready to build.
What's special about the plans on ArcadeFromScratch is that you receive prints of the parts in a 1:1 scale, which makes it incredibly easy to draw the plans onto the MDF without having to measure anything. Only downside is that everything is in French. I managed to translate the plans myself and the guy behind the site is very friendly and helpful.
I'm almost done cutting out the pieces with a circular saw. Below is a couple of pictures some of the pieces I cut out (sorry for the quality - will improve these later).
External and internal side of the cab.
Side of the bottom part of the cab as well as a side piece for the control panel.
Next step is to flush trim the opposite sides to get an identical piece. As well as using a 45° chamfer bit to achieve that iconic beveled edges the Vewlix is known for. Wish me luck!
I'll try to document my progress as much as possible.
Feel free to ask any question, post tips and comments regarding this project.
