Hey guys,

Ive been preparing to make a cabinet for a while now, and have plans for one i like, but all of a sudden i have become very space concious and leaning towards making a lowboy

i can find heaps of pics, but no plans of them.
if anyone has any plans, could they please post them or email them to me at miikeboyle@hotmail.com
or post links if they are on a website.

im located in sydney, if anyone has a lai lowboy style machine working or not they want to sell to me, please let me know

Thanks
Mike

Here is a pic of mine that I built from scratch.
If interested I have some scans of my (basic) plans I built off. Has most of the measurements on them.

Hey Whatisk,

Mighty fine examples as is yours.
Im still tossing up between a 51cm tv or a 21inch comp monitor.
Any if i should paint or laminate/vinyl finish.


Thanks

Thanks all for the positive responses to my cab :)

There are still a couple of things that need doing on it at some point - better marquee, coin door (currently there is an ice-cream container attached under the coin mechs :redface )

Mine has a 21" PC monitor in it. As the whole front panel under the CP is one piece, I used networking cable to make it easy to disconnect and open the whole front up (pics below to illustrate). The monitor sits on a custom made metal frame which also gives the cab plenty of stability. It's also designed to be able to be dismantled if required.

If anyone has questions about anything, feel free to send me a PM - or ask here in this thread.

Spotlanx - you have PM.
