Not all of us will make fun of you - just most.
Just remember one important rule when you fab your own shit (whether a n00b or an eXpert):
"How likely is it this part/piece will fail, and if it does, who dies?"
Seriously - if you have questions, post them up, most of us will be happy to help in any way we can, whether it is with advice or ideas.
Keep it up, have fun and be safe!
