My name is Chris and this is 1st post to forum and 1st real woodworking build using hardwood I'm very new to working with hardwoods but been reading up for awhile I've been wanting to get into just never got the chance till this year.

So on to my arcade

I built my original arcade about 5 years ago out of mdf and painted black

But of course wife said it didn't match with new house and so the beginning of the build started.

It will play about 15,000 games anything for Atari nes sega arcade etc

Was built out of 4/4 black walnut about 3/4 after plane down on side I double up to give it thicker profile finished with tung oil

After I had arcade I decide to start a pinball build

I have about 200 tables on it from 70's to now

Made out of black walnut also has 3 tv's all stainless and aluminum is polished out and sits flush with wood also put tung oil on it

Nice work man. I haven't seen a pinball cabinet like that before. Is there a way to incorporate haptic feedback?

Thanks

And yes to feedback

Right now it has 8 contactor for flippers and hitting stuff also a gear motor for things that move a knocker and motor for vibration also has sensor for bumping table/tilt

I'll up a picture of inside of cabinet later tonight to show

Man, that arcade console is seriously sweet! That came out really well. Can you give us any more details on sourcing the electronics for a multi-game machine like that? You have my wheels turning... :)
