    How much did that setup cost you?
    It looks great! I'm thinking about building one myself as well and was looking for ideas and what the cost would be. Time isn't important but how long would you say it took?

    Howard, yes it is insulation, a type of hard styrofoam IIRC.

    Josh, Each 36" cabinet cost around $80, the top was $20 as it was a scratch and dent, stain and sealer was about $20, and with all the misc. hardware to mount everything it total right around $220. If I wasn't in a rush I probably could've built a set of cabinets out of plywood and red oak for about $50-$60 each which would've been stronger and eliminated the particle board, but I was in a rush so I chose the already completed one. It took me about a week and a half to put everything together, stain the cabinets, and mount the presses. That was only working on it about 1-2 hours a night. The staining/sealing took the longest at 4 days to do, but that was because I put a three coats of stain and three coats of sealant on it.
