Huge demand for oak spice racks?

I was keeping an eye on an ebay sale of an oak spice rack (mine is the white plastic variety & I don't really like it). The sold price was over $220 and shipping was $40! Is there really such a shortage of these things? I do woodworking as another hobby (like I don't have enough already) & wonder if I should make a bunch of them to sell to Airstreamers. Think there's any demand? They shouldn't be too hard to copy from my white one. I was just being lazy & though I'd buy one already made! Whatcha think?eBay Motors: Unique Airstream travel trailer tambour spice rack (item 250218190046 end time Feb-27-08 16:57:38 PST)

Becky,
I had the same thought - maybe build some for money. It is unique with the tambour, can't imagine paying that much tho...

I'm sensing a hobby that pays for itself.

If it would fit above the stove in my Trade wind and was cheap enough, I would be tempted.

If someone were to make a pattern of the side with the wall curve, I could make some for folks - at much less than that ebay price

Wait - who said anything about profit??
If I got just the height X width and the curve of one side piece I could figure the rest out.
No, haven't priced tambour. Might eat up all of my "profit".
I'd love to do Casini, it looks like a good time and a great location. But it got scheduled on the dates of our annual camping trip that is set in stone.
Have a good one...

Dave:
Why not just "custom" build them?
20 1/2" wide and 25" tall is what I have, same width as the stove top so it looks nice mounted right tween the bulkhead and cooktop.
But a good fab man could offer dimensions to fit other applications, or just make them out of carbon!

I'll do wood and leave the carbon to you.
Thanks for the demensions, I can get the curve from my trailer.
You're right, they could be built to any spec.
