    as a kid, I told myself that, one day, I would have a tekken 3 arcade machine in my home one day. I can't even ballpark how many hours I've spent playing that game at home or in the arcades.

    Now that I am a man (in age only, I assure you) I'm thinking it's time. But I think it would be even COOLER to make an arcade machine that can play ALL the Tekkens somehow. Just a thought. Thanks for the great instructable!

    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.
