Nick, the counter is why redo your kitchen when you could hire others to do it. Some people do it because it is a challenging project to do. Mind you, this would be best done as a project you know will take a long time with lots of studying and effort.

A very valid point MCM, but just remember that these illusions are someone else's intellectual property, not simply a kitchen. I'd rather not get into a debate about ethics (That happens all too often on this board), but I am sure that without any proof of an ability to build the illusion, you would not be able to aquire the rights to build it (sorry if that was a little confusing). Thus you would never be able to get to a point where ethically/legally you could build the illusion yourself.

The two things our art needs are more creativity (more new, different, exciting illusions) and more respect for the originators of these effects. Sorry if I sound a bit "preachy" but I really think people need to stop focusing on what has been done and instead try and see what still can be done.
