It looks so easy 4 you...and you're fast   Smiley

At this point, you should consider to build few Nintendo cabs in a row... they are so rare here in Europe, and I'm sure you should be able to sell few replica very fast  Roll Eyes Wink

Thank you! Smiley
Yes I am building a DK cabinet as well. But been busy with it much too long though Sad
Other arcade related things keep me busy as well. Like a Sega Astro City japanese candy cabinet.

Scr33n is doing a superb job. If I could do it over, I would definetly change a couple of things.
for instance, never screw from the outside of the cabinet! Sad
I had to fill all the screwholes multiple times. And still not perfect.

Scr33n is right about the Jakobud plans not being to faithful to the original cab.
Some things are missing in the plans, monitor support, speaker grill is not exactly original, top-front sindpanel corner (at marque height) etc.
But you find out those things while building and comparing to original DK cab photo's.
Maybe we have to adjust those plans and send comments to Jakobud.

Good luck on the cab Scr33n! You're doing an outstanding job.
Your previous cabs were spot on, this will too.

Scr33n is a fan of metal brackets, and they work fine for as we see on his pacman and galaga.

i myself want to build one day one too, and i was thinking to use this kind of wood connections



somebody have experience with these ? (exept for the ikea closets  Wink)
