I built the larger one out of wood. It works great. I'm going to add little blocks of wood to the bottom corners and have screws hold the bottom on. Top is glued on. Thanks Krusty, my 11 yr old son really likes this. Building 2 more for gifts.

Use 3mm Acrylic.
Black lines - cut through (outside of box, coin slot etc.)
Yellow lines - cut lightly (shadow effect on side of cabinet)
Red lines - engrave (monsters on side of cabinet & playfield)
It's a bit of a puzzle to put together - there's 12 pieces. My only suggestion is check twice before glueing! (Yes, my first go at assembly ended up with a piece around the wrong way and a gap lol)
The artwork is designed to be on the inside of the cabinet - if you're going to make one of these out of MDF or similar, flip the artwork at least on the screen, otherwise it will be mirrored.
Oh!! And don't glue the top on - then you won't get your coins out again!
Edit I've uploaded a larger file to suit 1/4" by request. This will give you a cabinet that's 11" tall however I don't have any 1/4" so haven't yet tested it. Comments/Feedback on the upscale would be appreciated!
