Finally, I got around to starting work on the actual cabinet. Once you get going on this it is very hard to stop! However, it is important to take a step back and look at how you are progressing.
First stage is to cut up that nasty square wood into lovely arcade cabinet shapes. This can take quite a while and you should take measurements often. This is where a circular saw proves invaluable and I’m not sure I could have managed without it. Any wrong cuts would mean another trip to B&Q (60 mile round trip for me!). However, I managed to cut all the sections without disaster. Here’s a couple of pictures of all the pieces.
