Custom Game System Cabinet

This is the beginning of the game system cabinet. The shelf still needs work but this was just started last night. I miss measured the sides and was only able to use 2 rows on the cabinet. Once I get some more money to spare I will buy another sheet of plywood and have the sides redone to allow for the third row, I also want to buy wheels for the cabinet to make it easy to move if needed.

Yes that is vhs supporting the center til I can get a chance to cut a new board.

Found some Dreamcast Games
