Fully CNC-machined Mame cab from Finland

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

Started building my first Mame cabinet and the first day of actual building here in Finland was today and the day was a success, everything went wery smoothly.
We CNC-machined all the parts from 19mm MDF-board and glued the cabinet together.

This is the first prototype to test the ideas out and the company that owns the CNC machining station/wood shop is thinkin of maybe selling cabinet kits for all interested parties.

2 different kits are available:

- assembled, unpainted (460 euros)
- assembled, unpainted (520 euros)

Lots of pics etc here, sorry about the finnish language though..:

I know that this may be a dumb question but what would something like this cost shipped to the US?

"At the moment, 2 different kits are available:

- assembled, unpainted (520e)
- painting of the assembled cabinet can be arranged

The customer has to manage shipping themselves, I have not gotten any shipping prices to countries outside Finland, here´s necessary infos if you guys want to ask around for some shipping estimates:
We are located in Turku, Finland, Europe.
Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...4&z=3&iwloc=r4

The weight of the kit is about 80 kg & packagesize of the boards is approximately 200cm*90cm*80cm."
80 kg = 176 lbs
200 cm = 6' 6.7"
90 cm = 2' 11.4"
80 cm = 2' 7.5"

mameroom sucks. They live within 10 minutes of me and do not allow visitors. What a bunch of BS.
