Video game crafter Big J.W. handmakes these incredibly precise miniature arcade cabinet reproductions of some of my favorite retro arcade machines of all time.
The current collection includes everything from Tempest to Galaga to Pac-Man to Donkey Kong. No detail is spared in the design of these wondrous miniatures..
Each of his tiny little arcade cabinets is handcrafted out of stiff bass wood, along with bits of balsa for some of the cosmetic details. They’re priced between just $20 and $25 bucks a piece (game figurines not included), which I think is a really great deal for such precision craftsmanship. You can get your hands one one of these miniature marvels by reaching out to Big J.W. via e-mail.
Big J.W. builds, paints and stickers each miniature cabinet to order, so maybe you can convince him to make one of your favorite games if you ask nicely.
