There are plenty of plans on the net for uprights, cocktails and table tops.
Good luck

Just ordered the I-PAC 2 and all the peices to build a two player deck.
Really only going to play fighting games and not much else. Will go get some ply on the weekend and a new LCD 23" or bigger.

Hopefully it turns out half as good as yours.

Looks sweet!

I'm in the process of compiling a new frontend for my cabinet.

What frontend are you using?

Ive done the same myself. Ive got a 4 player Street Fighter cabinet and have a dos mame box running with about 4.5 thousand games running. Its a great novelty but only gets used now if guests are over.
