Housewife building Asteroids Cocktail
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:07:25 PM »
Hy, i am new to this Website and new to Arcade too.

I was dreaming of an Dedicated Cabinet but my wife sad:" think you are stupid , how old are you"  ;D

So i was starting to build a Cocktail-Table 7 Weeks ago, hoping wife did not realized that i am building an Arcade-Machine  ;D

It´s optimized to our livingroom, little bit larger than the original.

Two Sticks each side, Panel ist 60cmx18cm each side .

But let Pictures spaek.

Go for your way and finish what you started  :twisted:

Hy Ully, i have seen your posting in Arcadezentrum.com and your Link to the pictures of the resto of Paper Boy.

So i had the idea , looking what other people are doing outside Arcadezentrum.

I only use a few tools, dont know how in english say:

-Handkreissäge
-Oberfräse
-Workmate
-Stichsäge
-Schraubzwinge
-Kleinscheiss

Greeting, Hagen

Hi hagen and welcome here ;)

Wow... choosing to replicate an Asteroids cocktail is a great challenge  ;)
Very good job so far... I presume you already have some 'wood working' basis, regarding what you've already done.
Regarding your wife, I'm sure she'll be happy to play Tetris, Puzzle Bobble on that machine  ;)

Good luck  :)
