I used a jigsaw, router, and drill to build this cabinet so the tool requirement is not out of reach for a beginner.
I have built a couple of arcade cabinets and have enjoyed learning how to build them and customize them. My 10 month epic build has finally come to an end and I've finished my Borderlands 2 Arcade Cabinet! For show and tell today I brought an instructable that will demonstrate how to build an arcade style sit down driving game cabinet. With the idea of recycling an old PC I had at home, I decided to build a mini arcade machine, thanks to the MAME emulator, we can play to thousands of old games we played as children.


An arcade cabinet is generally designed and builded to play vintage arcade games, so seeking for power and rendering stuff in teh cabinet is quite vain.
Well I'm glad you askedI love to make things and after building and enjoying my MAME cabinet I realized that while it worked great for Pac-Man, the classic arcade controls left a lot to be desired when I wanted to sit down to Spy Hunter and other driving games. Last October I took to plunge after browsing online arcade sites and being inspired by other peoples efforts.So here's my blow by blow cabinet construction blog, I hope you enjoy it. Inspired by your build I've been working on my own cabinet but I'm stuck where it comes to connecting the buttons to the USB controller. I ordered all the arcade parts I would need from Arcade World UK.- 20x led buttons with relays (6 yellow, 2 white start buttons, 12 red)- 2x 8-way joysticks from Arcade World- 1 Min PAC Keyboard Encoder with wiring kitMy Dad had some spare plexi-glass shelving, so he made the main parts of the control panel as another Christmas present!


In the end I went for the vibrant and striking art style of Borderlands, it seemed a perfect fit for an arcade machine. Here it is on Amazon The internal width of the cabinet is 600mm and the full width of the monitor is 570mm, so it's a great fit.
