I was just wondering if anyone here has made their own vac-former table, and if so, how did you do it? What kind of materials are needed, what kind of budget are we looking at, and how do you use it?

actually the most expensive part is the styrene.
ive got a link for a great cheap vac box, ill post in a second.

my first one was just a wooden box with holes drilled in it,a hole to attach a shopvac attachment and a wooden frame to duct tape the styrene to. Heat the styrene on the frame to fit in your oven and youre set.
