How much would it cost to have you make something like this? Thanks

Can I build it? Absolutely

Will the quality be better? Absolutely

Can I compete on price with a mass produced item probably made overseas? Absolutely Not

Steps involved in making even a simple piece like that are:
lay out and design
derive material cut list
cut material
deburr material
drill necessary holes
set up and clamp on table
tack weld assembly
verify squareness and fitment
final weld
grind and wire wheel prep for powdercoat
post powdercoat, install plastic plugs where needed
bag up hardware
wrap and package for shipping
ship via UPS or freight

All that is going to eat up every bit of 3 hours if not more

You'd be looking closer to 300+ shipping for me to build it

I've always found spotting/drilling/deburring holes to be most pain in the ass process out there. Slows everything down to a crawl.
