It's built!

Just gotta put the toe molding back on, cut the shelves (which will take all of 5 minutes with the miter saw), then slap the tabs on the brackets and load em up!

Although I don't think that I bought enough material for the actual shelves. I'll prolly need to grab some more 1x6" tomorrow and cut a few more. But that's just a 5 minute job ;)

Yuppers!

Took about the first 2 Terminator movies to get the frame and whatnot all built, then I spent the 3rd movie cutting shelves and getting the mess sorted out and on the shelves (there were DVDs all over the house at this point).

Looks great, though personally I would have painted or stained the wood;)

Seriously though, you need a better camera. Gotta do them selves justice8-)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

And who says I need a Turbobooster. Figured I'd be keeping this a while and I had some jacks left over from my Toploader NES AV mod that didn't go so well (wired the circuit incorrectly and fried the PPU but thats another story) so I tossed them into the Turbo-Grafx. Pretty happy with the result and the picture looks sooo much better.


Nice work on the mod. However, you still might want to get a Turbo Booster Plus as it has built in memory for game saves.

Eventually I may end up with a complete set, minus sports and wrastlin' games. I refuse to have all that filler crap in my collection just for the sake of having it.

MLB Featuring Ken Griffey, Jr. is a genuinely good baseball game. This is coming from a guy who hates baseball and sports in general. And although I stopped liking wrestling years ago, I still think WWF War Zone and WWF Attitude are entertaining games.

Just sayin'.

I'm sure there are some decent sports titles. I like the Blitz and Jam series of games, but I'm not dying to get them, that's for sure. I HATE wrestling. Those just won't happen.

I liked Mike Piazza's Strike Zone. That game let you edit EVERY player's name, attributes, etc. as well as the teams name, colors, etc.

I remember I sat there with a few of my friends for hours re-creating our little league team and playing a season with them. It was awesome.

Were good? They're still a lot of fun to play, and not just for nostalgia.

Yeah, seriously Wigs. I remember the first time I played WCW vs NWO... that game was the shit. I loved playing as Lex Luger (or as I called him, "American Underwear"). I think my brother and I bought every single wrestling game after that. The disc based ones (PS1, PS2 and forward) were never as good though.

Thanks!



Gents, I hate wresting. Didn't like it during 80's hulk-o-mania era, don't like it now. I don't care if those games rival Street Fighter 3 in terms of complexity, character balance, etc., I still wouldn't touch em. Absolutely not my cup of tea.


So while I had the miter saw out and about, I picked up some mess from the scrap pile to make this for the CCAG show at which I will be a vendor next month :)

Just gotta add a little lighting and voilà!

Hey Wigs, here's a question: if I have one of those cheapo fiberboard shelves, is it safe to drill holes in it for the pegs? Or would doing that destroy the shelves structural integrity?

These cheapo shelves never have even spacing (ie, they'll have 5 evenly spaced holes, then a large gap and then another 5 holes) and it's annoying to have such random spacing.

I don't think there's anything to worry about drilling some 1/4" holes for pegs. Just measure like 50 times first. Without a drill press it can be a bitch to get those holes exactly where you need them and you'll end up having to shim wobbly shelves.

I need to do the same with my entertainment center. It's got like 1 level of adjustment as it is right now, and the spacing is terrible. I feel your pain :(

Vinny, if you want to build your own with consistent spacing then get a piece of peg board and clamp it to the side boards. Then use that to draw your holes for the pegs. Just make sure the holes are level from front to back on the side board. Then they will be perfectly spaced.

After that, take your drill bit and put a piece of electrical tape about 1/4" (or however deep you want your holes) from the tip of the drill. Finally, when you drill you know you have reached the correct depth when you reach the tape.

Ideally you will have a piece of scrap wood to perfect your depth.
