Didn't you build this already?  Or was that someone else?

Nope, this is the real thing complete with glowing marquee and rear logo and glowing front edge  ;D.  selfie did a plastic version of my design last year.

a nice subtle dig at me taking the easy way out without the marquee :P ;D ;D Looking good so far. The offer to LASER cut anything still stands too.

Have you tried steam bending MDF?  I did it with hardboard and had great results.  On small bends like that the jig would be fairly manageable as well.  Just a thought for next time so you don't have to kerf if you don't want to. 

Looking stellar btw  :cheers:

Being able to say I contributed is thanks enough  :cheers:

On the masking material, there is a signwriters vinyl specifically for masking that can be run through a vinyl cutter like a normal cut sticker. Also Application tape, the low tack masking tape, that is used to hold cut vinyl stickers together works well as a mask provided you use a very sharp knife to cut it.

It's great seeing quite a few new people rolling into the forum lately!.  Playing games on your own hand-built MAME cabinet is sure enough great fun, but many find the actual build process the real buzz in the hobby.  ;D

 :cheers:

Ond

As a total newbie on this board I have to say that your builds are nothing short of inspiring.  I have to also say that yes, building can be much more fun than playing.

Inspiring would be understated for me, his work is truly astonishing! If only I had OND's tools and even a small fraction of his skill set I would follow.

Between OND and Maximus my jaw is literally sore from the perma-grin, damn fun stuff here guys and please know that sharing it with the rest of us is greatly appreciated.

I agree with the sentiments re amazing quality of work - also agree with OND re it turning out the build process is just as enjoyable (maybe more so) than playing on the finished article with your mates (or seeing a commissioned cab being just for the first time by the customer) - thanks for the amazing inspiration and creative ways you guys share with us on how to approach different challenges in this hobby of ours  :applaud:

I saw the green version of this a while back and really liked the design. I don't have much experience, but I took a stab at it. I've really enjoyed building and playing it.

Test fit CP and bezel to cab just with tape to make sure everything is nice and square and flush along joins.


This might be a dumb question, but did you cut that bezel using a 45 degree chamfer bit?

That is what I use to do mine, but I swear yours seems sharper and less rounded at the corners. It could also be that my eye are bad  ;D
