Very clean and neat build there! Gratz! Does the marquee light up? I couldn't tell from the video. I'm not a fan of the chrome t-molding but it's all personal taste i suppose. I'm not sure I'd bother with any side art. There's not too much room there really and you may be in danger of just cluttering the neat lines you've created. Lovely job overall!  :applaud:

A strip or two of self adhesive LEDs plugged into the 12V supply of the PC would do it. You don't need to get a full strip bulb in there. Is the marquee printed on proper material to allow the light to pass? It would look even better then.

I love this, it's beautiful.  :notworthy:

I'm starting my first cab myself and space is an issue so I'll be building a bartop like this one.
I've got the pc sorted and all the software set up so next up is woodwork before I move on to controls.

I really like the shape of yours which is why I'm wondering, would it be to forward to ask if you could share some more pictures and even plans/drawings of the basic shape?

That is a very clean looking bartop.
I like the marquee with the small logos to the sides, they look very official.
Great job  ;D

Thank you, I guess! :D

Isn't it a bit cramped for 2 players?
It is kinda the setup I'm looking for, but I don't want players having to rub shoulders too much.

Also, I'm gonna use one of these babies in my build:
