I have always wanted one of these, I felt it would complement my arcade machine well, so in late 2015 I decided I would attempt to build one myself. Since our second child was due within weeks, I felt this was my only opportunity for the foreseeable future to get this done!
I had a spare 37″ Samsung LCD TV which had a minor colour issue, and always have spare PC parts and monitors. So with that in mind I managed to convince my wife that I had most of the parts required to do this (hahaha).
The biggest problem was going to be… I have absolutely no experience in woodworking, sawing, painting and pretty much all the other required creative skills to do this. Not letting that stand in my way, I gave it a try and this is the result!

And here is how it all looks together!
