Last summer I wanted to build myself a 3rd strike cabinet but since I didn’t have the budget neither the time to build it, I had to postpone it to this summer. Now, I’m gathering as much info as I can before starting it. So I would need some help from you guys.
Here are two projects I’ve build so far (I have a 3rd one but didn’t upload pictures yet) just to show you what I’ve learned so far so you can guide me more easily.
So what I’ve learned so far is to build small and medium size boxes but never tried to do anything as big as a cabinet. I can solder, wire joysticks and buttons without too much hassle. I have a ps2 and was planning to put it in the cabinet to keep the budget as low as possible. I’ll buy a TV as soon as I can to be able to custom make the cabinet to fit with the TV.
What I need most for the moment are the templates for the cabinet pieces. I’ve found these that look descent but would really like if someone can show me the real measures of a 3rd Strike upright cabinet (US style even though I’m going with sanwa parts).
Also, any advice from experienced builders or any links would be also very helpful.
