How to build a full size MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) Arcade Cabinet.
I had wanted to build a arcade machine for a long time and was surprised how easy it was to build. My design is based on an instructable by ExperiMendel: https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-an-arcade-c…. I customized it for my height, 6 ft, and to fit a bar fridge that I use to store homebrew beer kegs. I may add beer taps to the front of it in the future. The total cost was about $500.
