After contacting Victor for some pointers (he's extremely helpful), I've started the design for my Namco arcade machine (basically a GBA SP running 'Namco Museum' in a fancy housing).
It's to be constructed out of 6mm MDF. I'll need to send it in somewhere (probably a company the UK) for routing as I don't have a CNC (does anyone know anywhere in Israel that can do this at a reasonable cost including the wood?).
I've already got the buttons, etc. and will post a few pics and specs in my next post.
Quite a few scrunched-up pieces of paper later, and here's what I've got so far for the housing.
