I want my basement to look like this one day

Having just decided that I’ll pick up a busted old arcade cabinet and whip it into shape with some new MAME innards, I’ve been doing some looking around at cabinets, repair techniques and build ideas. I’m thinking some custom art, a pair of six button controls with some minimalist coloring, gonna look sweet. Then I saw this and I felt like my scope was far too narrow. Just look.
