Garage built, parts sourced from everywhere as long as they were on a budget!
You start with some MDF you grabbed from the free wood pile from outside your local kitchen joinery factory.
Get the fasteners you think you will need from your local hardware store, hopefully with your brother and laws discounts.
Grab some server old rails from a very old server in the "room where computers go to die" at work.
Have you boss give you his oldschool Agfa flatbed scanner.
Buy another flatbed scanner, and some printers on trademe (Ebay).
Order you electronics from Sainsmart with money you gained selling your Honda NS250R motorcycle! :-(
