Well, it all started with a dream lol. Nah I’m just kidding. Anyways, took a lot of work and research to get this project done and I must say that I had a blast doing it. Mainly cause I got it all right on the first try and didn’t have to scrap anything.
Started with cutting the wood, drilling some of the holes and then gluing it together to make the box:
Once it was glued, I cut the MDF board to fit, then stained it and put a polyurethane finish on it for the gloss:
Once that was done, I was able to put the plexi glass on top and make the holes for the buttons and joystick. Forgot to take a pic of what it looked like after making room for the stick:
Then off to my first soldering/wiring job ever:
And finally, the finished product:
It was a total blast putting this thing together. To anyone with some wood working skills and general common sense and the ability to follow instructions to a T, if you are having doubts about putting something like this together I say go for it!!
