That looks very cool! <hand claps>
To those how think the price is silly, it is none of your business and certainly does not need to be posted here. Custom work for anything is never cheap. Here's a scenario I like to use. You car mechanic charges between $50 and $75 an hour if they work on normal cars (ford, chevy, toyota) depending on where you live. How many hours do you think it would take that person to make this? Think of every single detail that goes into this AFTER design, CAD, and everything Just cutting parts, rounding edges, polishing, drilling, welding, etc. It will take an experienced acrylic person with a fully equipped shop 1-2 days of solid work, again not counting design, CAD, etc. What would your mechanic charge you to build this???
Note, I'm not suggesting anything about mechanics, having been one myself, but I recognize the way people often think of mechanics so it usually makes a good point.
Even better you can look at this situation from my point of view. I think this case is beautiful and respect the work in it but as someone who was a custom furniture maker for a long time, I'd never buy a case, I'd design and build my own. Given the "not worth the money" line of thinking, I'd be justified to snub my nose at you for not having the talent or know-how to design and build a similar product. I might also look down on you for even taking your car to a mechanic in the first place. I mean come on, who can't change their own oil, right? (said tongue-in-cheek)
But I don't think or say either of those because I respect the fact that we all have different talents and different needs/wants in life. You should too
Again, beautiful work!
