We've shown you how to build a retro gaming table before but if you're looking for something a bit cheaper, Element14 shows off how to build one mounted onto an IKEA Lack table. Element14's guide uses a Raspberry Pi 3 to power the brains, then an Arduino Leonardo to power the joystick. From there, it's just about mounting in an old 17" LCD monitor, hooking up a pair of cheap speakers, then fitting it all together. The Lack is such a cheaply built table that it's super easy to take apart and repurpose, plus it's available in a wide variety of colours. As far as these types of things go, this is one of the simplest gaming tables we've seen. Head over to Element14 for the full guide.
