Title: Arcade Cabinét
Created: 30.09.2010 22:28
Currently ongoing project to create an tabletop arcade cabinet.
An upcoming project inspired by Japala from metku.net ,and my first doodling. Yes I like to draw small, and yes I've no clue what I´m actually going to do for the theme.

My ideas that I've played with in my head so far: Nintendo 8-bit theme, black&white (the colours not the game) theme, pure 80's theme with "neon light"-signs, a mix of everything that was cool in the 80's (transformers, The Goonies, Michael Jackson's "beat it", ANYTHING with ninjas, C64 Usagi yojimbo, huge shoulder pads and pink/black/white checkers. Oh man, The shops had only one brand of raisins and maybe two different chocolate bars... Please feel free to help by giving any ideas of the theme/outlook of the cabinet.

I am kinda fixated about the lower portions roundness, just to make it more special and stand out. But PLEASE HELP!
An upcoming project ...

Pictures of my very first case build, that also won an award in 2009 :D
I tried to take a picture of the studded (I hope it's a right word. "niitattu") aluminium bars that help to hold the shape with screws. I used 3,5mm copper rivets (studs,staples???) to fasten it to the plywood.

The left end of the case. Through the grill you can see the HDD's that have a  custom rack build to dampen noise.

From this picture you can maybe already see that the finnishing and sculpting are far from... umm... Actually I loved to leave the mark of a handmade item to it. It's handicraft.

Your basic frontview with a small LCD to tell a one point temperature; took it from our previous NOX CUBE case, and it's mainly for looks ;)
Right next to it are your basic USB and audio ports which are all cast in a handy plastic piece inside, thank you Silverstone for designing this FP32S model to save my day! The old audio jacks were broken in my old case.

On your right are the two leds; HDD & power. And next to them the power switch, made from a screw, to which I'll have a more detailed picture later on.

And last but not least a custom made DVD slot.
Very basic. Very boring? Maybe.

Surface and insides spraypainted (with can).

Cheez! This is the way our table looked before I finished the iZentih case. And this was for months! The Mrs. was surely pleased to get rid of it!
