daverep - when Martyn says "relatively inexpensive," what he means is it might talley up to less than a grand. ;-)
Seriously though, I hope it won't go that high, but it seems that it will easily go over $500. Stay tuned and I will be able to give a more exact price as more pieces get finished.
And thanks for the compliments! I keep being amazed by how this is progressing.
Martyn: I've had orders remain "in production" until the supposed ship date, then overnighted to make the deadline. It's a bit frustrating, because most of the time they're really good about keeping you updated, but then they're not. And you have no way of knowing. I think if you made it this far you're probably okay. Fingers crossed!
