After seeing online tutorials, and because I had time off from school - I decided to build an Arcade games machine. I added a lot of detailed pictures so you do no need much verbal description. The pice of the project Flexible - depending on which parts you can get for free. For me it was about $ 150. If questions arise you can send a message and I'll be back soon as I can. I hope to inspire people to revive the nostalgia. have fun construction and games. let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor!

So great Ible and hooray for Tekken, but i think that this is in the wrong contest. i doesn't look very sledge-hammer proof for the indestructible contest, not involve sewing for the tophatter contest, but i voted for it in the furniture contest.
This is a cool project - I would love some more detail about how you constructed this.
