Aloha - Cocktail cabinet

Post by Bennage » May 25th, 2013, 5:47 pm

Hi all,
I've been a member for a while now since using this glorious site to help me build my own cocktail cabinet. Having got the e-mail regarding the cleansing of members without posts, I thought I'd take this opportunity to show off what I made:

The whole thing cost about £300 to put together. It's got an old PC in it hooked up to a CRT I got from Freecycle and the control panels are made out of George Michael's old staircase (seriously).

All in all, it's pretty sweet.

Really? George Micheal's staircase! Haha, there must be a cool story behind that.

Thanks for showing us "The Cabinet of Dr. Feziwig". It looks like a blast!

:woot:

That is a great build.
See, this is why we like members to post. We would have never gotten to see that sweet cocktail cab, or hear that interesting fact about the control panel! Thanks for you post! :thumbsup:

I moved to topic to the Arcade Cabinets leaving a shadow in the Lobby. Plus added to the title "Cocktail Cabinet" so it will be searchable.
