Raspberry Pi enthusiasts and retro gamers in search of a new project to keep them busy over the next few weekends, might be interested in this awesome wooden retro arcade cabinet which has been created Sean.
The retro styled arcade cabinet can be seen in action in the video below and has been constructed from plywood which has been finished with a mahogany veneer.
Sean the creator of the wooden arcade cabinet explains a little more about the project, and has posted full instructions on how to create your very own via the SimpleCove website which is available via the link below.
This project was probably the funnest project i’ve done in a while. This little arcade unit is a blast to play. There’s not a whole lot to this little case. The case is made up of 1/2″ and 1/4″ plywood and is covered in mahogany veneer. Check out the video below to see how I made it and feel free to ask my anything in the comments section. The arcade unit is ran off of a raspberry pi that’s loaded with retropie. For the screen, it’s just a simple 10″ LCD monitor that I picked up off of amazon. You can find links to these items below.
