Arcane arcade table will surely invoke your gaming devil back into action

I think it’s a good business deal for just £3299, you get the advantage of three. A coffee table with a media center PC and an arcade gaming system, all integrates together in your living space. From the house of Surface Tension, this contemporary “Arcade Coffee Table” is definitely a piece which each one of us would want in our room. The handmade table hides under it all the attributes that your PC and gaming system comes with. Under the glass surface it touts a hidden Shuttle XPC, and an LCD screen (19″ or 26″), plus a built-on sound system with stereo 30-watt speakers that offers the best media center.

Coming to the gaming section, there are nearly 100 licensed games from Taito, Midway and Atari that won’t let you get up from this table. The drawer underneath reveals high quality arcade controls including Sanwa joysticks and buttons, and a Happ light-up trackball and spinner. Your coffee table would be no less than a play station with a great conversation piece.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems.

To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects.

We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier. I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and con, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house. However, you will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or burrowing below concrete.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement.


There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and the standard water heater of a normal house. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
