Default (Build Log) CrossBone XXL Custom Arcade Stick

After building my main 2 player arcade stick I’ve had quite a few people show some interest in me building some sticks. I enjoy designing and building them and it seems there is some market in it. So I figured I might give it a shot as I could use some side cash. I can try building a few sticks and see if they sell.

At first I thought I shouldn’t post pictures of me putting it together. But then I decided its so much work I’d like to show how much work I put into it. I did put a bit of thought into the stick and made a full 1:1 sketup model as well as some spread sheets and price lists to manage and make a few of these things at a time. but im going to leave all that out for now and just show the build for my first stick (still work in progress)

I’ve got a ton of pictures so I’ll let them do most of the talking.


This is my first prototype stick made for testing. Some steps might have been skiped as this is not a tutorial.



Ignore the mess, Enough wood to do about 8.





Tip DO NOT buy that Jig Saw it is a POS took it back after the first 15 mins.









PS3/PC PCB board unassembled







Japanese Sanwa Buttons and Stick with octa gate. IL Comp Select Start and Home/Back Button

Between These two pictures I decided to streamline the design to be more replicable. You’ll see parts have been cut from the top face of the wood as well as slight modifications to the aluminum

I have no training of any kind and this is only the 2nd stick I’ve ever attempted to make. I guess that’s why I enjoy doing it lol. I have made many speaker boxes and I built all the desks in my room (7 total) Other than that not even a shop class. I do have a mind for building things in my head and drawling them out on paper.

And thanks man

7 desks in your room ? Your room must be bigger than my apartment

About the electronics,are these kits you buy,with wiring schematics,parts etc ?

These build threads are cool,i've worked on guitars for most of my life,privately and professionally but never attempted building one from scratch due to the specialized equipment needed.

You just seem to build whatever the hell you need,impressive

They come with the parts you look at the printed board you can see where things should go.

My builds to are usually simple to me but I try to challenge myself with things Iíve never done before.

Should look for the means to get things together and try to build yourself a guitar.
