    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    John Bonham would like a word... And Dave Grohl...

    Quoted from JBtheAVguy:

    Yes...but there's only one Neil Peart...drummer of all drummers. Yup...I said it.

    There's a dad rocker who used to be able to hold a beat, Might have written the most famous drum break of all time...

    I think the big ball bowler is 13 or 14 feet and one day I’ll do some of the wood restoration myself..maybe.

    Almost bought a nicely restored one from St Louis restoration guys. Wish I had now. There were some cool ones from later years that had a lot of different games as well. Maybe someday, but I figure in the future I’m likely to downsize rather than increase my game room size.

    Quoted from Ballderdash:

    Now I understand the purple hue mixed with the red LEDs.

    Precisely why I added the shuffleboard and SuperChexx. However, in hindsight I wish I had gone with a bowler. Yet they are just so large and unlike the shuffle, pretty much need to back up against a wall. What length is yours? Btw, there’s a guy in Ohio that restores them to original quality but they’re like $10,000 plus. Yours for $1,000 was a steal!

    A shuffle alley is quite fun as well. Usually relatively inexpensive too. Not quite as long as a bowler. Mine is 9 feet long.

    Always loved Phil Collins versatility. A very capable drummer who was an even better vocalist. I always liked the drummer vocalists. Like Kelly Keagy on Sister Christian. My wife and I saw them, Foreigner, and 38 Special at Pine Knob in 2010 or so.

    #21555 4 days ago

    Well, if you guys are going to talk about drummers, I'm going to have to put my vote in for Buddy Rich.
    He was the greatest of all time; you could just ask him!

    They are bar lights?

    #21559 4 days ago

    You mentioned to start 'em young. I can't even begin to count the number of too-young-to-gamble-non-gamblers that I corrupted by offering a shot at pulling that handle...

    Time to go to the drummer's thread!

    #21561 4 days ago

    All real neon

    Quoted from punkin:

    #21562 4 days ago

    Yes, but beer signs. Noice beer signs no doubt. Wish i had some.

    Amazon or Aliexpress if you don't mind the wait

    And hope they don't come broken. Not a fan of the Chinese stuff but the price is good on them. 75% cheaper then made in USA on average I find.

    Half of my signs were bought at auction and half on local buy and sells/garage sales. Half needed repairs also. The kokanee foot was $20 broken and the Budweiser bottle was $5 broken at garage sales. Both costed $100 to fix.

    Really wish I kept all the neons I've had over the years. I miss this Heineken sign I had most. Have a perfect spot for it now.

    You should checkout the neon sign thread and Ryan Claytors awesome pinball and gameroom designs. Or the huge jukebox! If I had thousands of spare monies laying around, I'd definitely go all out on a big custom neon.

    It’s not a game room until it has a jukebox.

    Beauty!
    I like the cut-away along the staircase too.
    Nice touch.

    I also had to keep the staircase open to make the pool cues shots fit. Also makes the room feel larger then if I had just built a solid wall

    Man you guys have some cool setups! Just took over my wife’s downstairs office, only 1 pin and a cocktail arcade now but thinking I may add a Scooby. Or something else…

    Built an epoxy “penny bar” where the foundation forms a shelf…WIP but I’m having fun.

    Man that’s cool how did you do that

    Hey thanks!! Super fun project and pretty cheap too.

    I took a laminated pine board and cut it to the size of bar I wanted - you could use plywood, whatever. Stained it ebony so the pennys would “pop”. I used a penny’s diameter of .75” to figure out my dimensions so I wouldn’t end up with any gaps. Built a frame around the outside out of 1x3 Douglas Fir and sealed all of the edges using wood glue. I made a lip that was approximately 4 Pennys high, think that’s all up to personal choice and how deep of epoxy you’re going to pour. After that, it was gluing each penny down using contact cement, painting on a seal coat of epoxy, and then pouring a deeper coat (I went approximately 1/8” deep) and letting it cure. Slapped on some trim and threw an LED strip underneath it and there ya go!

    Lots of info on the internet if you want to try it. All in I doubt I was over $150 - including the LEDs. Amazon was the source for the epoxy and the Govee LED strip. Everything else the good ‘ol Home Depot.

    Lucky you’re not in Australia. Anything over 1m needs a balustrade. I have 6 steps in out new extension, the last is 102cm. Need a balustrade. It’s like Fred Armisen in Parks and Rec “Jail!”

    Cool setup dude!

    One of the coins you used there is very rare and worth quite a bit!

    I kid of course
