So I ordered 1 slab of 1/2 inch Mahogany wood 2 feet by 1 feet but 1/2 inch thick. I cannot get it routed or anything like that because where I live is in the Caribbean and I don’t think I ever saw a wood work shop here. lol only metal work shops.
So I wanna know if I put in a IL Eurostick HAPP joystick if it will be high enough? I am mounting it from the underside so the top will be perfectly flush with 6 button holes and 1 hole for a stick everything else will be flawless. My hands are kinda big and I am not a fan of small sticks which is why I HATE ball top japanese sticks. I like old school American HAPP sticks bat top. Shafts in Japanese sticks are also incredibly short by default because Asians have tiny hands. I am a big black man I have large hands so Japanese sticks will never work for me plus I want that sick insane American HAPP feel I wanna relive the 90’s when Killer Instinct comes out end of this month for PC and I also am gonna buy SF5 for PC aswell.
Another issue I have is the buttons how do I mount buttons onto this thing that is 1/2 inch thick? I highly doubt screw on sanwa or seimitsu will work. Will snap in work? won’t the tension on the snap spring get weak over time?
This is my dream stick I am building here its 100% Mahogany wood from the Caribbean with the exception of the bottom I am not sure what I will put there. Also the height of the side of this case is 2.5 inches I assume the Euro joy HAPP will fit and have enough room?
