Star Wars Dark Side themed cabinet build finished!

Recommended Posts

Long time lurker on these amazing forums, so I felt I had to make a post to thank the community for all the amazing tips and guides to finally build my own cabinet.

Always wanted to have my own arcade cabinet since I was a kid, and watching SimplyAustin's guides and seeing the great builds on these forums made it possible.

It's nothing too fancy, got Hyperspin almost how I want it, mainly focusing on MAME and the consoles I've owned over the years (NES, SNES, Sega) and an attempt to setup Amiga and DOSBOX, which is working but still a work-in-progress.

Anyways, here's some photos of the cabinet, the artwork done by Josh White and prints by Brad Bowman are nothing short of amazing, huge thanks to both!

(I got the original cabinet design from http://www.koenigs.dk/mame/eng/ and modified it a bit)

Thank you, I made the engraved aluminium window bezel at work, got a couple of cnc milling machines. Thought it would be a nice detail for the CP

Wow, it came out fantastic! Super clean. I'm loving the etched metal. Goes great with your color scheme.  It was a pleasure making your idea come to life in a total custom Star Wars theme. Really cool looking with the red lights underneath. Bet it looks killer in the dark.

Thanks for working with me. I appreciate the work. All the best!

Josh
