I have been checking all your work.
Congratulations, very well done, very clean cuts, pulishing, and overall work: excellent.
I love this model, me myself, also got back the "Donkey Kong fever" after watching the "King of Kong" documentary.
I'm also making a dedicated cabinet, Taito Model (joust, zookeeper...)

Next project will be a Donkey Kong cabinet like yours, although maybe not 100% equal to the original.
I may change width, to put 2 controllers, etc.

I'm looking for the plans, and I know you made a conversion from inches to cm, do you still have the plans?? I will appreciate if you could send a copy...

Once again, Congrats, looking at your blog helped me decied to get into making this cabinet. The best game of all times!!!

greetings from Spain!

Hi Pingaloka!

Thank you very much for you compliments :)

About the plans, I JUST found a mirror website hosting Jakobud's cabinet plans. You can find the link in the bar on the right, or here http://happycampers.to/arcade/jakobud/.

Checking you website in a moment!

Greetings from The Netherlands!

Petty is in inches.

Once again thanx! And great work!

Sorry, I don't think I have my paper drawings / sketches and measurements any more.

It took me some time to convert them all to cm too :)
