Like AndrĂ© I also found some time to get things done. My wife is the driving forces for the mancave at the moment  :oops:

First she organized a Halloween party for the kids so that forced me to get some friends together rent a van and get machines in the cave and install the light show plus music.

Next up was a newyears eve party with a big diner.... We needed an extra table so this pushed me in construction my lab table that was on the todo list for a while already.

Lets see if I can get some pictures  :?

Update still can not upload pictures... My camera does 1200x1920  :evil: so keep you posted...

So first some picture from the move. We rented a van with a hydraulic loading platform. Really nice except for the maximum load. Only 600  kg. That is only four pinball machines  >:(  .... We figured that there was a safety margin so we loaded 8 pins per tour  :P . That mend we needed three tours to get all the pins and video's from my storage in Amersfoort to the cave in Apeldoorn  :?

The unloading was easy with the hydraulic platform but we needed to get them 4,50 meters down into the cave. Luckily the cave has an outside stairwell with double doors and a double gutter left and right from the stairs so that I could use my custom made trolley to lower the goodies into the cave.... The rest is just a question of men power.... No problem it a mancave so there plenty of that  ;D

Great thread and great work! On a Mac you can just use the built-in Preview for resizing - you can do multiple images at once too :)

No Safari needed! If you double-click an image on the desktop (or wherever) it opens Preview. Go to Tools, then Adjust Size. If you select more than one image at a time, then you can batch resize and save them. Handy for quick rotation using Apple+L or Apple+R too  ;D

The get the right mood in the game room we needed a fun light plan. I used two strings of indirect light. This led stuff is amazing  :shock:  One string is 12 Volt backlight. The other is a 24 volt RGB-W string. If you ever buy led strings .... go for 24 volt, much brighter  :spaceace: Further more I used this nice tl twisted lamps in red, blue, green and backlight. Two laser units, a mirror ball, a rgb floodlight, smoke machine adapt machine, a 1971 seeburg bandwagon jukebox. I still need to build the bar, get some neon and ........ any suggestions.... anyway this is how it looked when the kids had their Halloween party.

Next step is the lab.... I created an separate room the store part and to work on games that need fixing. That way I hope to keep the game room nice and tide.  ;D Fot the lab I had to make a workbench. This project was long due, but because we needed a temporary table for the new year party I had the chance to combine these two projects. I love a big workbench, next step is sorting out the parts and tools and them I 'm good to go for some repair work  8)
