How about an arcade cabinet that can be used as furniture? Moreover like a mini-table.

His passion for the arcade MAME bug has motivated him to make it easy for everyone to get one.

Most of your focus and maybe some expertise is required when installing the control panel. Either access the separate control panel construction guide or consider purchasing the suggested Raspberry Pi model.

This arcade cabinet could be placed in any room of your house and be easily transported too. Got an unused PC and monitor lying in your basement? Consider taking it apart and using the parts. If this DIY professional could build it in under $40, you can definitely get close!

Steam Link lets you stream video games from your computer to the arcade cabinet. The design is sleek and boasts a wonderfully crafted controller area that comes with a pull-out tray. This tray would have pinball paddle buttons and cup holders. Customizations like these are why modern-day DIY arcade cabinet plans stand out.

There are dozens and dozens of plans for bartop arcade cabinets online, but none of them were exactly what I wanted. So I decided to make my own design from a combination of different designs I found. One problem that I discovered is that all of the bartop arcade machines that were built for two players were actually very crowded and having two grown adults playing at the same time would basically have them touching shoulders with no room to move at all. So I knew I would have to make mine much wider than any other designs.
