We have 2 different panel layouts to choose from when ordering your kit. Panel A is great for modern PC fighting games. Panel B is great for Raspberry Pi and Jamma Configurations.
We offer these kits in two different materials, Birch and Thermal Laminated Birch. Our Birch is a furniture grade material with a veneer on both sides. The Birch can be stained, painted, or wrapped with graphics. Birch is a much more durable material than Melamine of MDF, which most arcade cabinets are made of due to cost.
While Melamine does have a nice black finish, it splits, cracks, and swells easily; this is where our Thermal Laminated Birch is a far superior alternative.
Thermal Laminated Birch has a Birch core (unlike the particle-board core of Melamine), so it is very strong and durable. It has a laminate that with a nice black smooth finish, lending durability to the surface of the material as well. This option is great if you want a pre-finished cab that does not need graphics. But if you wish to add graphics, the smooth finish makes it very easy: just clean the surface of any debris and apply the art. All of our full builds use this material.
Which one is better for your needs:
Birch or Thermal Laminated Birch?
The DIY Birch Kit comes with the fully assembled panel only.
Thermal laminated Birch is a premium material that has a nice smooth black finish that is ready for art to directly be applied to the surface.

We use an adhesive backed print for easy install. We also use a heavy-duty 5mm laminate over all of our prints; this is thicker and tougher than most print shops use. Not only will it apply easier than other prints, it will also last a lot longer. If you don't see an art package you like, you can even design your own and upload us your files to print. We also have third-party art designers we can refer you to, all of whom have a history of working with our products.
Art installation is only available with the thermal laminate birch kits. We install your prints onto the cabinet along with the T-molding. This is the closest you can take a kit to a finished level without buying a finished machine.
Art installation adds 1 to 2 week lead time to your order. Normally ships in 2 to 3 weeks.
