nicros has a few in this group

i made my own at a fraction of the cost.. you could also make a triangular shape or whatever you wanted as long as you can match up the edges correctly (luckily my dad is a contractor so he helped with the cutting)

Ya, make your own. It'll be fun, I promise. Ask chossmonkey, his wall has them and I believe he made them himself.

I made a couple for the gym I work it. It was pretty fun and will probbaly build a few more for the coming comp season.

that said, check out halo holds http://haloholds.com/main.html

oh, don't waste your money on the Nicros No Evils
they're overpriced and need some modifications.

didn't do the whole key back shit though. just screw in along the sides and called it good.

don't really need blue prints.. just pick a shape and go for it. make sure you cut the angles to match so it fits together nice and you're good to go. having a father that is a contractor/carpenter is a big help.

Yea.. it would be hard for you to not crank one out of kickass walnut with maple trim then lacquered to simulate duel tex

Iz tru.



They aren't too hard to build. Especially if you don't mind a lot of wood filler.

This is a fairly new company on the East Coast.

They look good, but I figure I'll just settle with my chossmonkey.
