Step 1: Materials
!PSP! If you don't have one then what are you doing here? o_o Ha, just kidding. But then again I look at instructables that require everything I don't have. (including knowledge of the subject.) Moving on!
!Cardboard! I'm pretty sure that anything will do. Try different thicknesses to your liking. For my first stand i used an old Converse shoe box and it worked perfectly.
!Knife/Scissors! I'm using my handy X-acto knife and a pair of scissors. (Pairs are two, right?)
!Pencil/Pen! For making marks and stuff.
!Glue! I used some Elmer's and a hot glue gun for the spaces that may be left over. You don't need the glue gun if you don't have it though.
!Ruler! For making straight edges and measuring stuff.
!Any decorations you might want to put on the stand! I just used some flat black spray paint and paper for my first one.
!You also may need a charger, just so you have a good guess of how big the feeding holes should be!
Once you have all these things, move on to the next step!
Step 2: Begin!
The top-most front piece is 3cm x 9.8cm.
The top slanted piece should be 2cm x 9.8cm. (This is the one that pushes out a little bit more.)
The bottom slanted piece is 2.3 x 9.8cm. (On a real arcade booth, this would be the control panel.)
As for the "screen" i did not put any cardboard so that i could still access the charger and for space issues that i had later in the project. I also left the indenting part of the top alone so there would be a bit more space for the PSP. I hope this page is not confusing in any way. If you come to any problems, just leave a comment and I will try my best to answer it.
Step 3: Decoration !Only If You Are Spray Painting!
Step 4: Feeding Holes
Step 5: Assembly
Time to put it all together. Take one of the top/bottom pieces and lay it paint side down(if you did paint it.)
PIC 1: MAKE SURE THAT EACH PIECE IS FACING THE RIGHT WAY BEFORE GLUING!!!! Apply glue to the side you are putting the first piece on. *I suggest applying the glue to the left side with the left piece so you will have a support in this next part*
PIC 2/3: Now stick that piece on and apply pressure while it dries. While still holding your first piece (left side of stand) apply glue to the back of the left piece and along the back of the bottom piece. Stick the back side on to the glue and let dry.
PIC 4/5: Glue along the right side of the back and the right side of the bottom and stick on the right side of the booth.
You may want to feed the charger into the back through the inside of the booth and out the side now because you may not be able to later.
PIC 6: Glue the lower front piece onto the three front sides.
PIC 7/8/9: Glue on the top, high front, and indenting pieces.
