I started a project about a year ago and after a long busy year, I finally got some time to sit down and finish it.
Let me know what you think.
Here they are in the midst of painting. And before being hung on the wall.
Beautiful! And great attention to detail having every block represented. And it's especially awesome that it's all off the ground! You must have some sturdy studs.
Just be careful that you don't put another straight vertical piece on the right or all your shit's gonna disappear.
@afrofools Each Tetromino is made of an individual 10" x 10" x 10" cube that were then nailed and glued together to make a Tetromino.
I use Google SkecthUp to design most of my projects. It's easy to learn as far as CAD programs go and give you a bit of a game plan before you start cutting. Even made sure all game case sizes would fit.
This was the initial design, placing of the blocks changed a bit.
@tycobb: I hung them with standard cabinet mounting screws. They are about 3" long and I made sure that every Tetromino has at least 2 screws that are hitting studs in the wall. As for sturdiness, I don't know if I would hang off of them, but they should be as strong as any other household cabinet that you would fill with plates and bowls.
@bbalpert:A full MAME cabinet is the next project. Buttons, joysticks, trackball etc. are on its way to my house right now. Keep and eye on the Off-Topic threads because I plan to document all of my work as I go through the project. If you want to check the artwork progress (or do a design yourself) check it out here.
