A arcade table I made last year.
Made with veneered solidwood panels i made myself, Thereafter veneered with Walnut. Handcarved solid walnut for the legs. A lot of fun making the tabletop! And carving the legs.. omg, Walnut is truly a wonderful material!
Inside the table I used a rasberry pi with emulators for NES, SNES and Atari.
And as you can see in the pictures there is a screen under the tabletop, for this I stripped down an old computer monitor, always superfun to harvest old electronics!
One of the bigger problems i had with the construction of this table was to make the drawer work even with the arcade sticks sticking up.
To solve this problem I put two small legs at the ends of the arcade panel. attached with hinges so the legs could fall down when the drawer is pushed in. When the drawer then is opened Two strings are hooked to both the two legs and the inside of the table frame witch then pulls the legs up at the right time.
You guys have to excuse my English, I don´t really have the faculty language on lock yet :)
Let me know what you think, and if there is anything you would do differently.
