Wow, you have made an awesome cab, tailored to suit almost all of your gaming needs.
The TATE setup is easy, practical, and just friggin' sweet. Kudos, man. :D

:shock: Nice move, you pulled a rabbit out of your bag of tricks! I thought the monitor would pop off the board for rotation, good move making the whole back fit 90 degrees like that.

Got a PM for a full-on rear shot - so may as well post here.

Basically the monitor has a 1/8" lip on all sides, so while there wasn't much room for error, it worked out perfectly - the best part, beyond the easy TATE, is that obviously everything (inputs, TV buttons) are easily accessible still.

Your kids are seriously going to have the most insane video gaming memories when they get older.

"Hey, remember when Dad built that arcade cabinet?"


Nice job dude!

So Mike, I know where friends and all but are you ever going to pay me for the cab you had me build you?

I think it came out damn good considering I don't have any of the tools or wood or basic understanding of electronics that you do.

Be careful what you ask for. He searches his name just like (names deleted because they really do search for their names in threads), he will see this! And he will respond!!
