I like that Ebay case, I hope they get some more made. In the meantime if anyone has the correct tools and a knackered LCD monitor you will have the raw material for making your own perspex case.
Behind the actual LCD panel is a very nice and very high quality light diffuser made from a Perspex looking material, this is see through (though has a series of small white dots for diffusion purposes). The thickness of the LCD panel and weight is all down to this one component. With the right plastic cutting tools you have ready made case material.
Depending on the make and age of the LCD depends on whether the CCFL tubes are held in by a small screw and therefore easily removed,or if they form part of the metal case. If the latter, they will often break (the tubes are very very thin compared to what you might be used to) when removing the metal back panel to gain access to the acrylic/perspex diffuser.
I'll try and take some pictures at work tomorrow and post them for those interested.
