I emailed the do-it-yourself guy, who is a hacker, about the cost of 
materials.  When I get a response from him, I'll post it.  If it's just 
wood, paint, and circuits for the top lightbulb, then total costs of 
materials shouldn't be more than about $100.

I'm willing to pay for the materials if it's only about $100.

Here's the link to the info:
