The ghetto-ness of my booth is humorous, but it does the job for now..

Veloci Jet box - FREE
Gildan box - Free
Home Depot shop light - $13
Home Depot bolts/washers to hold up light - $2
metal ruler (secret weapon to lay down fibers) - $1

Total cost = $16

v1.1 will have an upgrade to the gildan box, maybe mdf or some other material that is smoother..

Sweet. I'm thinking about making something like this. You didn't list the cost of that grayish-silverish adhesive that connects them together. How much was that and where was your source? I also am having trouble finding a velocijet box for less than $10,000... Can you tell me where the free ones can be found? :)

You can also build a little longer lasting box out of pine, melamine or plywood... Plexi would be nice for the T-Shirt support...

Seriously move your 'booth' way far away from that really nice lacquer chest...

Oh right, I forgot the cost of the duct tape..:) You're right, I guess 'technically', that box cost me $17,000..

Here are some pics of one that is for sale on eBay right now for $475. Doesn't say who makes it or anything. But the pics may help inspire some ideas.
That's sold by a member of this board. I would buy it but it doesn't look like the bed angle is adjustable. (I don't like the angle)

I use a Spray-Tan booth / tent, with a shop fitting that holds cards to put a coathanger on. It works well to keep the pretreatments going all over everything but I need a better way to hold the t-shirt as at the moment it is just on a hanger and is very flimsy so its difficult to get an even coat.
