      MS/Pacman Cocktail Plans - Metric NEW

      UPDATED 01 AUG 2009

      Fully Converted set of Metric Pac / Ms Pac Cocktail Cabinet Plans


      Based on KYLE'S LINSTROMES PLANS HERE Which actually use a 1 INCH THICK TOP, so that's why the top is NOT on this initial cut schedule.[/COLOR]
      * * * * IF you want to use a 16mm thick top, then cut the sheet to 1828 x 1220 FIRST * * * * Use the 600 x 1200 offcut piece for the top

      The layout was re-arranged for easier use on a bench saw - So if entirely using a jigsaw, the old layout will work fine for you

      The straight red lines are the cuts

      METRIC Cut Schedule

      If using wood grain use this sheet here

      Top of cabinet converted to metric



      CP's and legs on base and Brackets to Metric




      Sides and main base to Metric

      Nice plans,

      If like me,you are building a woodgrain version of this cabinet (mine is made from 19mm hoop pine plywood and will be stained) - be aware that if you use the above plans the grain for the back panel (items 4 and 5) will be at 90 degrees to the grain direction of the front (item 2) and the ends (items 1 and 3). If you plan to cover the unit in veneer or paint it then it doesn't matter. I used a sheet of 1200x2400mm plywood and also made the top out of the 19mm ply. With One sheet I was able to get all grain dimensions in the correct directions inlcuding the top.

      I would post my sheet layout here but I feel it would just add confusion as I have increased the dimensions of the unit to house a 21" monitor.

      After Actually building one from these plans some amendments were made.

      Pics have been updated and listed in RED

      On the Main cut list plan there was red writing on it already so the changes are underlined in red instead

      Go for it.

      POINTS OF NOTE

      1. The monitor is 21", and this detail is left out as each monitor is different
      2. We used a panel the same size as the base panel for the monitor, with the screen cut out of it
      3. 19mm pine and melamine glue was used with an air operated staple gun (30mm Staples) inside on each corner. But 30mm screws and 19mm square pine corners were tried on the 2nd one, with success - if staples & gun aren't available
      The 2nd Machine Built thread is here - note different monitor detail, we used the 21" flat screen on no 2, which is easier to cut the bezel, as it's 2D instaed of curved
      4. The monitor actually sits on the 19mm pine corners
      5. Iron on black edging was used on bare ends to hide it.
      6. Wheels were used and 2 fixed 60mm legs (from bunnings), instead of the levellers.
      7. The top size was changed to 560 x 815 so the glazier doesn't get confused
      8. The top with glass attached, hinges up, and the monitor stays in the cab

      Woodgrain version

      The grains run up and down on all panels this way - BUT you have to make the coinbox out of scrap - Alternate colour or MDF if needed



      EDIT: The Base can be cut from Scrap, and you need the exact size for the monitor too - from scrap is fine too

      Allow 100mm below each CP piece, to clamp the shape while routing th opposite side

      Like this (Cut the grey area out)



      Hope it helps, kind of like an archive for all (and me) later I guess
