Step 1: Build a Vacuum form
Step 2: Get some suitable plastic
Step 3: Make a bust for your case
Step 4: Make the case

There are a few links to the guides on doomportables.
I would recommend building a small box version rather than the full version like I did. The box version takes up a lot less space and is a lot easier to build.

$7? So you're willing to lose money? The clay, plaster, and ABS necessary to make a mould and do vacuum forming will easily cost more than $7. Not to mention the cost of actually building a vacuum forming table.

Thats true the plastic and clay are more than $7 and the labor cost. Thats dirt cheap charge at least $15 and thats pretty cheap for a vaccum formed case. But do you have the skill to build quality case or are you just beginning?
