Buying or hiring someone to make a drawer system

Hey Guys!
I've got a budget of about $900, and have been looking everywhere to see if I could find a wood worker or someone who already has the tools necessary to help me create what I have in mind.

I've posted on craigslist, reddit, and numerous other locations- but cannot seem to find someone. Just looking to see if anyone in the SF Bay Area knows someone willing to do custom work. or what systems I can buy (two drawer for my 4th gen 4runner) that I can then modify, into what I'd really like..

Thanks for any insight....

Seriously? I think your budget is too low. You will need to account for at least 4 to 8 hours design time and 20 to 40 hours build time for something custom. Guessing in SFB area this would be closer to $2500 (plus material)

You didn't say where you're located. If you want to help build the system and camp out in my 3 acre back yard I'm near Sedona AZ. You pay for the materials I'll do the work for $25.00/hr

Huh?
 
I feel the design is fairly simple and I suppose I could always push the budget a bit. But come on people, I know this is overlanding-but its turning into the marine industry. It's still just two damn drawers. No way in hell is it worth that much. I know you get what you pay for, but some things can be done within reason

Someone is currently doing my drawer setup for my 3rd gen 4runner. I found him by posting an ad on craigslist searching for someone that could make them.
He is charging me $350 for the drawer set. :wings:

'just two damn drawers' - Then build it. Learn a new skill. It isn't hard and doesn't take much time. And if you peruse the sticky topic all the design work has been done for you. $100 worth of used tools and built it yourself.

Sounds like you should do it yourself if you are not willing to pay a tradesman what they are worth.
