DIY Arcade Shell Wine Barrel

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Arcade Wine Barrel Cabinet

Regular price $392.00 Sale

Remember the old arcade type games? The classic ones? Want to build your own but don’t want a typical arcade cabinet? How about a wine barrel cabinet for arcade games? We have used wine barrels straight from the wineries which we turned into an arcade cabinets. These barrels can hold whatever arcade game kits you want to add for 1-2 players. 

RECYCLED: These rustic wine barrels still have the barrel rack marks and wine stains proudly showing their years of winery service. All this adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.

UNIQUE:  The barrel is made of 1“ solid white oak and is countertop height.  We cut out a small access door for servicing.  The actual size of the door depends on each barrel.  The arcade electronics and monitor are installed horizontally so that 2 players can sit facing each other. This barrel can be raw for you to finish, or finished in medium walnut to show off the wonderful wood grain or a darker ebony with black hoops. We find that each barrel takes the stain and oil in its own way along with their markings being slightly different, hence no two tables will be the same. 

HANDCRAFTED: We handcraft our products with love and quality in mind here in California, USA.  Every product is custom made to order.  Please allow us up to 3 weeks after payment to create your cabinet.

This is an arcade cabinet only. Electronics are not included.  You will need to get the  arcade machine, screen, power cord and power switch.   

OPTIONS: We offer a raw barrel that has not been sanded nor finished. This is for you to do. We also offer a sanded barrel with a medium walnut finish with silver galvanized hoops or an ebony finish with black hoops. You can also select to add the control panel and monitor cover.  We will finish the control panel and monitor cover based on your selection of raw, medium walnut or ebony finish.

Please note that although the same care and quality is put into all of our products, there will be natural variation due to the wood selection (either French or American white oak), wood figure, winery or cooperage markings, wine stains from the inside of the barrel, and other factors. No two pieces will be identical and each has its own story to tell!
