That comes right out of the Space Age (70's) :)
Everything was wood and looked futuristic, like the original Magnavox Odyssey and it's evil clone Wonder Wizard.

I wonder if it would be possible to put holes in the top surface, it so the game pads could be put on top upsidown. So It can double as a coffee table, or is that already the case?

Thank you Tek! Yeas, that´s already the case. The holes for the joysticks are there. And the pads do go upside down when not in use, making it sort of a side table =)

absolutley beautiful
This is a thing of beauty. I love the wood vibe, and good detail on how it was done. Lignum-punk? Really very good. Love it.

It's awesome. You need to hook it up to an old cabinet tv, or install your monitor in the cabinet itself. Then the aesthetic of the console will match the aesthetic of the screen.

Outstanding!! I have been wanting to do a steampunk version of what you did here. This gives me some good ideas to implement on the parts I was having a design block. Thanks for the great project.

That must be THE most AMAZING craftmenship I have ever seen!!!
Great woodworking and amazing yet simple design! AWESOME!!!
There are some things that are just to awesome for words, and you have built just such a thing!

I've been trying to figure out how to make a MAME cabinet/console which would give as close a feel to the real thing as possible while not taking up too much space in the lounge room, and not looking out of place. This is perfect for that! I think I will be basing my next build on this.

Amazingly done, one of the best self made cases I've ever seen!
I was planning on making a MAME coffee table this summer but I might just have to try this instead. It looks great!
A really sleek and elegant looking project. Thanks for sharing it.

this is AMAZING! absolutely beautiful. it looks like a beautiful piece of furniture. Yesterday i was considering making a MAME cabinet, This has changed my view of what a game setup COULD and SHOULD be.
This is amazing! I imagine it is even more fun to play than it is just to look at!
