Bartop Arcade Machine

I used my X-Carve to create a bartop arcade machine complete with a Raspberry Pi loaded with RetroPie and a 24" monitor. All frame parts were carved with my X-Carve, and I’ve added some pretty comprehensive instructions for building your own. It will take some modifications if you use a different monitor. It was a fun build, took about 4-5 days and cost roughly $350 overall.

It is published in Easel, and is definitely fun to play.


Nice work. One question out of curiosity, how much did it end up weighing?

Well done and a nice write up!

Total weight I would guess is about 20-30 pounds.
