Awesome project, for an awesome reason!
Glad to be an inspiration. Lots of good cabinet designs out there depending on what look you want to go for. If I ever build one for myself I'd probably just do a control pedestal model that I could hook up to my TV when I wanted and put away when I don't.

good job so far and good luck
That one looks good. Wouldn't take a lot to finish it, but I understand the delay since it's usable as-is. Thanks.

Sounds awesome. This project came out of a conversation with my Dad a few years ago saying he'd have an arcade room if he ever became independently wealthy. He still probably wouldn't though because he's very careful with his money.
