Nifty little rig. Does it run on a Pi? (It's so small! :) )

How about something like this. My wife didn't want it to stand out too much so I stained it to match some other furniture. All the buttons and joysticks have RGB lights too, run on a Howler board. Also the original plans were the same as the first post but modified to fit a 24" 16:9 monitor with two players. https://imgur.com/a/wXZVm#0

Nice looking piece!  The wiring for the control panel looks daunting, but I keep telling myself that it'll be easy - 1 step at a time...

Thanks a million for posting the plans.  I have been looking for something like this to try to build a bar top rig.  Don't have the space for a full cabinet.

Its really not that difficult. Let me tell you that for my bartop project i did a couple years back, I've used an old wireless gamepad that i hacked in order to connect the arcade controls. Now that was challenging. If you use an ipac your life will be a lot more easy.
