Introduction: Nintendo DS Arcade Stand / Charger
This is a Nintendo DS stand/charger. The main idea is for it to look like an old school arcade game. the charger plugs into the ds through the back.
not my original idea!! mine is just the "better" version. its colored, and has better instructions.
credit to Duobix for coming up with the basic idea.
[original ds charger arcade maker]
Step 1: Cutting It Out..
you will need:
first draw out the out line for the 1st side of the arcade game ds charger thingg as seen in the picture.
the cut this out with your knife. [make it 10 in tall]
okay now you have two walls.
Step 2: Measurments
like i said, it should be roughly 10 in. high
then make it exactly 5 in. wide.
connect the two walls by hot glue-ing a top and botton.
(i would make these 5 x 6.5 inches)
Step 3: The Back of Your Arcade Machine
the back you just cut out and glue in, use alot of glue!! you want this to stay on.
cut a hole in the back so the charger cable can go though. (as seen in picture 2)
Step 4: COLOR, Make It Look Niceeeeee
now, i made mine look like an old super mario bros. arcade game.
but i also considered:
but i leaned towards a more nintendo theam! i would like to see creativeness so send me photos.
