Well SicCooper, I'll tell ya...

I can't recall where I order those acrylic sheets. It was either www.usplastic.com or www.onlinemetals.com.

Anyways, here’s what I ordered:

12ft x 1/2" acrylic rods (those end up being the pillareds of the stand). 12" x 12" x 1/8" acrylic sheets... 9 of those.
Acrylic cement and applicator.

The general dimensions of that system stand are 12"w x 9.5"d x 32"h

After getting my supplies I cut the rods into 3.75" pieces and cut the sheets down to 9.5" x 12". I then smoothed out the bottoms and tops of the rods with sandpaper. You could probably router this... but the rods must be quite smooth on the ends where you cut... don't round any edges. Use the acrylic cement and applicator to start building the shelf. The acrylic cement isn't glue; it literally welds the two acrylic pieces together. It's a pure liquid... so that's why it only works if everything is smooth. It sets up within a few seconds. It all works out pretty good. :)

Oh also, just in case you wanted to make a shelf of a different size, the N64 system dimensions are as follows:

N64 - 10.2w x 7.5d x 2.9h

N64 Pokemon - 11.5w x 7.5d x 3.5h

Hope that helps some.

Wow, I just noticed, you have the grey Turok Rage Wars cartridge! You've got an excellent collection and very nicely displayed.

May I ask, what's your favorite N64 game?

Okay, this might be a "dangerous" question being that this is a Nintendo console forum, but I see you have other consoles in your gaming setup and I was wondering which non-Nintendo console(s) are your favorites and what non-Nintendo games do you really enjoy?

The Red Shadow – hmm… non Nintendo consoles. I guess I’d say my favorite retro non Nintendo system would be the Sega Genensis. Back when I was a kid I had a choice between the SNES and the Genensis and I went with Genensis. Always was a huge sonic fan. I had an Xbox 360 until it broke down… dang red ring of death. :P

Zoki64/itsonlyafleshwond - No worries about dust, just a little duster now and again takes care of that and I have some pretty thick blinds in my gameroom which are closed about 99% of the time, so no issues with fading on anything. I just open them to have better lighting for pictures. :)

That is so so very impressive. How on earth did you get that grey Rage Wars cart? My favorite feature would have to be your Mario and Zelda rows, I would love to do that with Zelda and Kirby someday.
