I want my very own mame cabinet

Post by King_6 » October 6th, 2008, 5:48 pm

Hi everyone I am new to this site and it seems like a pretty cool place for mame talk. Does anyone think they can help me out with a custom mame cabinet. I purchased a computer for it, learned how to boot up the mame automatically, and even made designs for it. The problem is finding a cabinet for it! I am 15 and live in the US, my mom said she will help me out with 100 bucks. Does anyone here have a ragged cab they aren't using anymore, or knows someone will will seel me one + shipping for 100-150 bucks thanks.

Hello King_6, welcome to the forums. You probably dont want a ragged cab, because then you would have to do more work to it to make it look decent. You are better of buy would from a Home Depot or something like that, and having them cut it in the store. You can have a sit down cab, 2 pieces of MDF ($20 for a 8ftX4ft piece) should be more than enough for a sit down or a slim up right. If you really don't want to build one, I have to ask where do you live?

I live in Detroit Michigan. I really didn't want to build from the ground up because all of the cutting, measuring, and the placement of the wood is just too much.
