    I'm not really sure why I like this stick so much but it is very pleasing to the eyes

    6 button layout makes it better

    Here is the latest.

    Curly maple box with some Samurai Showdown art by galfordo.

    This one is dual modded to work for 360/ps3/pc. This one also has a Neutrik for pimpin portability and storage.

    My sticks

    I have finally finished my sticks.

    3768919571_51230b9d8e_b.jpg

    Left one is all Seimitsu, Right one all Sanwa parts (thanks to akihabarashop for the parts, great service!). Both sticks use Mad Catz xbox360 PCB. The cases are teak.

    two box lids

    Not perfect but the best I have done so far. I took the lids of two boxes from Michael's, glued some MDF to top and bottom to make it sturdier, hinged them together, stained the box a walnut color, 3 coats of gloss. The brackets on the side are to make the box straighter because they weren't exactly identical. I won't attempt another until I have the needed tools.

    After two weeks of Spain I finaly got the time to finish my stick, here are some details:

    - Stick is a Sanwa Jlf, added the spring from the stock stick for some more tention.
    - Black meshball top.
    - Buttons are all Sanwa OBSF (30mm)
    - Art is from Tobiee , with a little touch of my own. (Made it a bit more black and white and added my GT in the top right.)
    - Art is printed by Dekalu on adhesive vinyl, did cost something, but its worth it!

    Hope you all like it, here are some pictures of the result:

    The whole thing:

    Meshball (love this thing):

    Awesome sticks, guys! It's refreshing to see original works. As an owner of a modded TE, I think I'm going to puke if I see another SE or TE mod again.

    Can't wait to start work on my Padauk stick. Been too long since I made a stick. Damn TE!

    Spent this weeked building my second stick, wasn't overly happy with the first so wanted to start from scratch using the existing components.
    *snip*

    Stick is made from a light oak with a light matte varnish, Sanwa JLF and OBSF buttons and a headphone jack extender cable. Base is covered with felt, art is Udon.

    To say I'm pleased is an understatement, I'm a computer geek and woodworking isn't exactly part of my skillset! I re-used most of the control panel from my previous stick with a new piece of Acrylic (cut inc holes by the company who supplied it, I recommend this!)

    New stick was about 7mm shallower than the previous, 55mm deep which is about as shallow as you can go with an unmodded JLF. The place that supplied the oak cut it to size for me as I don't have the tools to give a nice edge (previous stick I cut myself and had gaps)

    Issues I had, Acrylic was a mm or so too big which was a pain in the ass to trim down with sandpaper. Control panel needed filing down, FP button fouled on the corner block, guide button fouled on the control panel so lots of trimming with a scalpel. Ditched individual ground wires in place of a daisy-chain one, much neater. Still need to find something to cover the exposed screw heads on the base (hence the tape!)

    Everything is pretty damn snug inside, I was so shocked when I plugged it all back in and everything worked, I was sure I'd damage the pcb somehow. I've gained much respect for anyone who builds their own custom stick, my blood, sweat and tears went into this build and I'm painfully aware how difficult building a stick from scratch is.
    I love the choice of wood color, artwork and buttons, they all flow together very nicely.

    you can setup the 7th button for a focus attacks on sf4..helps if you don't want to press mp+mk during a combo or whatever.

    Thank you for the compliments, nice to see someone else got the same idea as I did!

    However, the sticks on that link were a LOT cleaner from the inside than mine. There was a reason I didn't post pictures of my sticks insides on the first post ;)

    This is how the insides look:

    3769315703_b0d634afed.jpg 3770115336_bbafa26bce.jpg

    ..I have to defend myself by saying that these were my first sticks. Also, this project was unfinished for so long that I just put the insides together today in a rush. I still have parts for one stick, when I have time to make it, I will try to do the insides more manageable.

    Pretty standard, hopefully gonna get some artwork sometime soon. For some reason my HK and all 3 kick buttons has stopped working, but for some reason when I turn turbo on for them the buttons showing it's on in the top left for the individual buttons lights up. Anyone have any idea?

    It's for games that only use 4 buttons, allowing a straight 4 configuration just like their arcade counterparts...

    Don't the buttons get distracting during play?

    Or is that intentional to throw off the opponent? :bgrin:

    That looks awesome, the art really fits the stick. Where did you get that meshtop by the way?

    from gamingnow.net they seems to be down now
    Very nice, did you use vinyl dye on the whole case?

    Just got my plexi in and put it in my HRAP3! Was so pumped when I saw it in the mail today. The cutting wasn't too bad, but the print had some blemishes that I'm going to just live with for now.

    Parts: 6 orange sanwa 30mm, 2 dark hai sanwa 30mm, 2 orange sanwa 24mm, 1 orange sanwa ball top, 1 sanwa GT-Y restrictor, 1 normal HRAP3 plexi from Art's Hobbies, 1 black arrowed dust washer from Art's Hobbies.

    Results:

    And here's a close up of the dust washer (its kinda hard to see in the smaller pic, but the arrows are pretty prominent in person.

    What brand did you use? I've been wanting to do the same to mine but I was worried about the finish of the sides matching the middle portion (already black) portion.

    I'm strangely drawn to your mods. Paint looks great.

    Painting the endcaps does wonders in getting rid of that cheap, shiny, plasticky look of the TE's. They should've come like that from the factory.
