    I know I would never ever find an original Oakley countertop X metal pedestal. So I got to thinking maybe I could make something similar. Again I got some aluminum from work and some carriage bolts too. I was working at a hardware store this week and they had a scrap piece of 1/4 inch plexiglass I said that would be perfect for a bottom shelf. They cut it for me and told me 8 bucks as I was leaving they said its yours. So again with some time and tools I made something cool. Also it was FREE to make. Without further ado.

    Very nice work! I actually have the original pedestal but someone bought the top part before I had the chance to get it.

    Won't take long to file down though........and besides, other than that, you've made a great functional addition. Go on, finish it right.
