*** Bartop/Tabletop Cabinet Kits For Sale ***

I had a request from a board member to build a bartop cabinet in kit form, and now I am offering these preassembled, A.R.P. ("almost ready to play") kits:

- Pac Man / Galaga-inspired design
- 3/4" MDF construction, built tough to take "abuse"!
- fully assembled cabinet, rough sanded and primed (ready for artwork, or can be painted with minimal prep work).
- top, side, and front edges are routed for t-molding
- marquee retainers and light installed
- double acrylic marquee panels for "sandwiching" your marquee
- clear acrylic monitor panel (removable)
- no-slide rubber feet on the base
- overall dimensions 21.5" deep, 25" tall, 18"wide
- accomodates up to a 13" TV or up to 15" monitor
- monitor opening 12" x 18", mounting depth 15"
- 6" x 18" control panel, big enough for two joysticks
- Dimensions can be modified to accomodate your wants/needs (additional charge may apply)
- Photoshop templates included allow you to drap-n-drop your sideart, CPO, marquee, and front panel artwork for a perfect, print-ready fit!
- Empty cabinet weight (as shown below) is about 45lbs.



I am offering these for $179, and ground shipping is free within the continental U.S.  Turnaround time from reciept of your order to home delivery is about 1 week.  PM or email me if you want one.

Well I placed an order and he did respond to me. :)

I'll let you know when I get it.

I'm still not sure how I will stuff everything I want in there though.

Whoa! I guess I better get in here and defend myself!  I haven't been online much lately, so I apologize for the lack of response.  To answer some questions, the back consists of a thin removable panel, I will get a photo of it up soon.  The light is an 18" flourescent tube, mounted approximately 6" behind the marquee glass, with a standard 2-prong 110v plug.  As far as responding to PM's and emails, to my knowledge I have returned all the messages I have received...if I accidently overlooked one I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.  I have sold two of these so far to BYOAC'ers, one has been shipped and the other is almost done, so I will let them respond with their review of the product once they receive it.  Also I am working on some custom full-size cabinets, more on that later.

Will you make any plans available for us DIYers or is that a proprietary thing?  If so I understand.

I will probably make the plans available in a ZIP file that contains the Photoshop templates, PDF, and AutoCAD formats.   It would take me a little time to clean up everything so it would be useable, I would probably charge a small fee (like 5-10 dollars) to cover my time, if several people are interested.

Received the Bartop yesterday and thought I would post a pic or 2 and write a quick review.
Item is well build and put together.
It's all pretty much ready for you customize and with Xmas fast approaching it's just what

Thanks for the pics of the back! I am hoping I can get a 17" monitor in there (without the case). I guess we will see when I get mine in. It hasn't shipped yet.

Yeah thanks for the photo of the back. ;)  I lost the charger for my digital camera  :(

I just did some measuring and a 17" should fit if it is removed from its case, although the back panel of the cabinet will need to be modified to accomodate the length of the tube.

Every once in a while I am tempted to put in a LCD because I could get some more screen real estate, but I'm sure the picture quality wouldn't look as good. I think I have a 17" around that has a touch screen with the outside bezel cracked. I can pull that out and try it before buying a new 17"

Matt, I have sent you emails, PM's with no response...  It's been 2 weeks.

If I don't hear from you by midweek I am assuming you are ripping me off and will take appropriate action with PayPal

Sorry for my absence, guys, but plans are available now!  I've been out of town, and then sick, sick, sick!  But I'm back now, Nailz did you get my email?  I'm not here to rip anyone off!

As for the plans, I am including the following:

Scale drawings and dimensions in both Abobe Acrobat (PDF) and AutoCAD format (in case you want to tweak 'em!)

Template for sideart in Photoshop format (just drag-n-drop!)

And some notes on how I put them together, as well as some assembly photos.

Everything delivered to your email in a convenient ZIP file for a mere $10.  Interested parties can send PayPal to weedzie1@yahoo.com.

Thanks everyone for your patience!

I'd really like the plans but will hold out paying for them until the people you owe come forward that things are settled.

I have no doubt you will settle but it would be foolish to place new orders with someone that has outstanding delivery issues.
