Try eBay, there is someone on here that has ordered one from there, I did look at them and they looked really nice. Think they made black ones too. Pretty reasonable price as well.

If you drop me your email address I can send you the plans for the one I've just made. (Check out my last thread from this discussion board).

I had a guy cut all the ply wood to size, it was then a case of piloting holes and screwing it together. Cost me £50 posted for the wood and then 20 for the glass.

Laminate should be OK - I always use 19mm timber.

I recently bought this:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261145280171?redirect=mobile
I'm still awaiting its arrival as they build to order but the prices seem good and they offer black as an option, they will even discuss custom sizes.
I'll let you know about the quality when it finally turns up if you like? Should be less than 2 weeks away now. I've taken time off work to build and prep ready for Archi's move...so he better like it!
