This Guy Found An Old Wine Barrel, What He Did With It Is Pure Genius.

Anyone who grew up during the 1970s to the mid-1990s probably stood in line to play a video game. Every quarter was saved for the next visit to the arcade. Reddit user TheStrayMongrel wanted to re-create the golden years of action video games by building his own large console.

This DIY uses a wooden barrel as the body of the arcade and the result is pretty awesome. Take a look at the step-by-step project. It may just inspire you to build your own.

This barrel is about to get a make-over.

The template is drawn out along with some of the hardware needed for the job.

Buttons and joysticks are set to the base.

Next, the control unit. You can visit your local hardware store for help cutting.

The bottom base needs to be attached to the center of the barrel.

Paint the base and the control panel.
