Awesome work mate.

I'm having a similar problem with my cab, re casters, as its sitting a bit high.

Currently deciding if i should try and recess the castors, take them off altogether or lower the CP to compensate. :???:

Hi Guys

Finally got my glass top today. :) The most expensive single component of my build ($155) but hey it is so worth it.
Amazing how it just finishes the unit off. The picture doesn't do it justice but the tabletop overlay looks so professional under glass.
I have to thank Danny from Gameroom Essentials for manufacturing up some clips for securing the glass in place for me. (not pictured)

This has been a great project. Sure there would be things I would do differently but for my first build I am really happy.
Already thinking of what to build next. Maybe a bartop but have seen some of the virtual pins. Seen some mini pins using 22" screens but I am thinking they would be too small. I think the pinnie will be out of the question with the wife.
I am sure I could sell the idea of the bartop with the financial controller :lol:

That looks bloody sweet goochee! Well done mate, very professional looking!

I'll have to hit Danny up for some of those clips methinks...

Glass makes all the difference. No probs with the clips, happy to help.

Graphics look good. Need to get my ass into gear and get my graphics done.

Been watching your build mate and you have done it in leaps and bounds, not to mention, some stark differences in the styling department which has been quite impressive.

As per glass top, I do agree that it just finishes it off nicely. I do have a few questions about it though. One being the guage and whether it's laminated/toughened/safety glass, etc... and also whether it matters if the glass covers the CP as I have no idea. One side of me says it's better protected from doochbags that spill things but the other says if it obstructs hand movements at all?

Have no idea what the standard was in the day when it came to the glass cutout specs.

Other than that, I love it mate and would trust you to build mine... :mrgreen:
