the halloween fear guide is great, but the studio creations guide is very easy and the table only costs ~15$ to make

Check the "case construction technique sticky" in the Case Construction forum. The links are all there, I'm pretty sure on the second page.

I'm a lazy cheapo.. Could I use a Dyson vacuum for a vacuum form? It would save me from having to buy a vacuum pump since I've got a broken Dyson in the loft. If I replaced the hose and cleared out all of the crap and gunk do you think it would be usable?

It sucks. The hose was melted though which deminished suction, along with all the filters it has and gunk stuck inside the whole thing. If I took it apart and cleared the crap and replaced the hose, I think it could be usable since it was a pretty powerful vacuum to begin with, but I wanted to find out if you guys think it's powerful enough.
