When I first started making project posts on I Like To Make Stuff, one of the first few blog posts I made was about making your own arcade controller using a Raspberry Pi. Since then (for a couple of years), it’s been a long term goal of mine to make a full sized custom arcade cabinet. I talked a lot about it, and over planned (procrastinated) for a long time. Eventually, I ran out of excuses to NOT make it, so I did. The planning was spanned over a year or so, but the actual build took place over about three months (while working on other projects every week).
So, without further ado, here’s the entire project in four parts. Also, if you want to make your own, I’ve got plans available for the version that I made. I’ve also got a list of tools and supplies for each stage listed on the individual pages.
