Nice  :-* ...especially for a cabinet you plan to sell  ;)
On the next one, you should use the official 'Nintendo Red Color' for the cabinet, and the authentic NIntendo's Joystick, and 'oversize' the CPO too  8)

I sure do ! , the whole weekend i was reading all roadtrips from you and others here

its really amazing to see that the old games still live here !

I have the plans to build a mini or bartop because i dont have a big house , but i also want to relive the old games

anyway , im still rebuilding this house , and when this is finished, my wife promissed me that i can build one for here in the house

So sure that i will  check this out , especially because im a DK fan

Looks very cool this project !

Don't you have pictures from work in progress?

You wouldn't be up for making just the cabinet for me, would you?  I'm pretty good with the electronical stuff, but my woodworking not so much.  Thanks. :)

A bartop will be, in some cases, an optimal solution for space.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

hi i got the plans somewhere off here they were not my own design
allthough i did alter the shape slightly cant remember which one exactly as i printed them out !!!

http://vectorlib2.free.fr/Plans/

i used a vga pc monitor in it... im pretty sure its 15"

You wouldn't be up for making just the cabinet for me, would you?  I'm pretty good with the electronical stuff, but my woodworking not so much.  Thanks. :)

pretty much depends where u are uk or somewhere else!!??!!

as this is a proto :) im doing slight changes to my nest one little things like t-moulding slotting instead of rounded edges and the rear has 2 fan grills which im going to just have one !! and 6 button layout will be implemented..

some low res pic's  :-\





cheers smythe
