Modern Wall Hanging Cabinet Build
« on: May 25, 2018, 10:51:58 am »
Loved the Polycade design but hated the price tag. I built this cabinet with half inch plywood using the polycade design as a reference. Running RetroPie 4.4.

That is horrific. We need a content filter on this site. My eyes burn.

How sturdy is the 1/2" plywood?  Did you just paint it or did you seal it first?

Very sturdy, lots of wood glue and nailed from the inside with 1x1 battens. Primed and painted with high quality paint, applied with a sprayer with multiple coats.

Bit of an optical illusion here, the stools are farther away from the cabinet than they appear. No issues and you can mount the cabinet higher if needed. I have it lower for my kids to play.

I agree.
