I wasn’t sure where to start with this project, but I know I had a k7000 monitor laying on the floor of my shop. My thought was to get the monitor off the floor and into the arcade cabinet. I recently tested the monitor, and was tested good. I wanted to make sure the monitor was working before I put in into the cabinet.
The first thing I had to do was remove the the piece of wood that came with the cabinet. It looked like the previous owner was installing a 25″ monitor.
I am fortunate enough to have another Dynamo cabinet and was able to use it has a template. I actually had some scrap lumber just the right size to use for this project. I cut it down a little bit on a table saw and then placed the template on it. Once the template was clamped on, I drilled out holes and cut with a jigsaw. Once I had a rough cut of the design, I was able to go over the template with a pattern bit in my router and got a perfect match.
