2 Player Arcade stick Worklog

Had two blank cases lying around and decided that i would attempt to make a 2 player tabletop case.


Rough Cut outs:

Glue/Screwing parts together:

Finished for the day:

i like that shape and i know you will make it work very well.

cant wait to see it finished.

What are you going to put in the middle? Please say cupholders.

Wouldn’t that be a bit risky? At least if he wouldn’t mount it.
If I would have the money i’d go “pimp my ride” on it. Mini monitor on it with an emulator of pacman/space invaders on it for those time when you’re just talking to people in your party.
But looking at the plans, its probably going to be start/back/home.

I thought about it, But only one would fit. I/m gonna put the start/back/guide buttons in the middle. i was thinking of doing a shared guide button that turns both controllers on but i figured it would waste batteries if you decided to play single player.

The shape and angle look great. Would be perfect in front of a huge screen, I look forward to seeing how it goes.

Looking good so far, plenty of elbow room.

It’s beautiful man, definitely want to see how this turns out… :lovin:

that looks so cool…Unique…not just straight 2 player

That looks great. So are you going to try to use one big piece of cover art? But it looks really great. I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

idea stolen. yet again… screw you panda, i’m still doing mine :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


probably not gonna do art. I’m gonna fiberglass it all into one piece.

haha. i look forward to seeing it.

that would be awesome. are you going to actually fiberglass it? or just make it look like its fiberglass.


That looks awesome! Although that curve has got me thinking about what somebody could do with 4 in a circle around a monitor, cocktail table style. Of course that would need a custom game…but that’s kinda what I do. :slight_smile:

Seriously though, great idea for two lonely cases.

that looks cool. i was thinking of actually getting fibers then epoxy and doing it yourself. :wgrin:

Sounds awesome. I’ll do the hardware if you do the software :wgrin:

Why make it harder than it has to be? I’m lazy enough as it is. :sweat:

Great work dude, loving it so far. Can’t wait to see what you do next.

Finished the major shaping today and started the top panels.





This one really shows the shape nicely:

Should start fiberglass on wednesday or so. Wish i could have done more, but it was getting really hot out…

Haha, wheredja find the stop sign? Scrapyard someplace?

Lookin’ good!
