Recently I've been lusting over pictures of custom made arcade cabinets...


Nothing unusual there then!


This time though I've spent hours looking at videos posted on YouTube of how they were made and all the intricacies of putting a cabinet together and then doing the electronics side of things to make it all work.

This subject fascinates me and itches my urge to create my very own arcade cabinet.
So I have decided to give it a crack.....
