The Virtual Pinball Cabinet Takes Shape

Here are some great photos of the cabinet with the veneer applied. I was fortunate to have the help of my friend Andrew, a custom cabinet builder who did much of the work in getting the veneer on. He then routed the holes for the flippers and the front panel. To the left is a photo of the cabinet, and the image to the right is the backbox. No more Lethal Weapon 3 graphics! I think it turned out great...

The next step is to do some light sanding. Then I'll make a trip to Woodcrafters and see if I can find a stain that appeals to my sense of color. I had bought a fruitwood stain some time ago but it turned out a little too orange and I'm looking for more of a reddish color. Progress has been made!
