    wow! Thanks for the replies and actually we might be considering fabricating these for sale in the future. The price will NOT be $100 but it will be a VERY competitive price. They came out WAYYYY better than I or he expected I still need to do a "texture" coat on them before there done. Thanks again for all of your Kind comments, feel free to add any input as far as any recommendations for improving the current design.:D
