Enclosure for under $10
#5
I actually gave it a try and it worked rather nicely. I had some trouble cutting the acrylic glass and opted to use a Dremel with diamond blade. That led to the edges being quite rough. I sanded it down a bit though. How did you do it?

I used 2 mm acrylic sheets (3€ for more than enough), M3 threaded wire that I cut down to 4.5 cm pieces for the legs and normal steel nuts.
To drill holes into the acrylic without cracking it I first pinched an indent into it at the correct spots and then used the Dremel again, this time with a needle type diamond tip to first drill through in a smaller diameter. The final 3mm hole I then drilled out using a simple hand drilling tool.
After assembly, I put some heatshrink on the end of each leg.

Thanks for the idea!
