Design

My brother-in-law is a huge fan of the Minnesota Wild. He had an old computer that he didn't use any more, so I asked him if I could use it for a project for school. I decided to surprise him and make a bartop arcade with his computer based on the MN Wild for a Christmas present.

I used white melamine for the case and built it to fit a 17" monitor. I based the theme on the Wild white jersey. I don't have a picture of it, but on the back of the machine it has his last name and his favorite number 99. I used four hockey pucks as the feet of the machine. I used hockey tape instead of T-molding for the molding. I also used hockey tape for around the marquee. For another finishing touch, I had a custom made one-player button with a hockey player on it.
