Arcade Stick

Here's an arcade stick I made when Street Fighter 4 came out (3 years ago).

I need to find a picture of it actually completed. I made the mistake of finishing the veneer before painting the trim, so the paint didn't take as well as I would have liked. 

The parts I used were:
6x OBSN-30 Screw-In Pushbutton - white
1x LB-35 BallTops - white
Then the stick and rest of the guts were from a Hori EX2 Arcade Stick.

It works really well but since I usually play away from home, it's too heavy to carry around a lot.

I Love Veneer!

I love working with veneer. I learned a lot of it from Tom Tedrowe and used it a lot throughout school.

Here are some cocktail tables that turned out horribly. I was going for an orange and a lime but the shaping took so long, it fell apart at the end. I was trying a lot of techniques I hadn't used before. The tops are awesome though.
