    It has been 11 months since I contracted with Doug Huse of Lets Play Pinball to build me a new cabinet. I sent him cabinet decals as well as inside the cabinet decals for the build. I have not heard from him since. I have sent repeated emails which go unanswered. Phone calls as well. I even contacted the New Milford, Conn. Police Department to do a welfare check but they refused. Has anyone seen or heard from Doug recently? It seems like this is not the first time that someone has voiced similar concerns about Doug. He has built several cabinets in the past for me without issue but this time is vastly different.

    I have also been trying to get in touch with him and have not gotten a response.

    This guy would be filthy rich if he just answered his phone and Email. It always amazes me that guys who have a product that is in huge demand just piddle around and never reach their potential. This is the umpteenth posting I have seen asking about his whereabouts.

    I know that he was ill last year and took a period of time away from cabinet building. however, I thought that I read [here] that he was back to making cabinets last summer.

    It's one thing to not take on new projects but it's quite another to make a commitment to someone and then not follow through. He doesn't even have the courtesy to answer an email or the phone, and it's been 11 months. That is just extremely rude and obnoxious behavior. BUYER BEWARE in dealing with Doug.

    I had the same and finally heard from him soon before Allentown. I did get my cabinet and was happy but he lost my deposit check and told me after he had my decals and installed them they were off slightly (not him but the maker of them). Kinda annoyed. Hope he comes through. I wouldn't deal with him again.

    I know his work is top notch, but I've heard the same, that he can be a tough one to get a hold of, and there were health issues involved.

    Was weird though...he listed a few things on Mr Pinball a few weeks back. I immediately reached out by both email and phone and got no response.
