I cut two pieces of oak for the sides and then routed an edge for the acrylic to sit on.
A test fit...
I cut an oak base so that I can mount the Pi and boards.
This arcade will be on display at a local maker showcase. I need a way to easily detach the base from the sides to explain how things work. To hold things together, I'll use 12 small rare earth magnets. Later on, I'll probably add pocket hole screws to make it more secure.
Drilling holes for the magnets.
Magnets added to the side and base using CA glue.
I then stained the wood.
The next step will be to add a poly finish to the wood and then assemble everything.
