Video - Plywood AR Lower

Updated links below:
I've been watching Summer Patriot, Winter Soldier's blog for over a year and I'm glad to see he finally got it working.  This (and Orion's Hammer's wood AR) is what inspired me to do a sheet metal AR lower of my own (coming soon, I swear!).  His is a piece of plywood, milled out into a AR15 lower.  It's sandwiched between two sheets of metal to keep everything together and uses a PVC pipe as a stock.  Pretty clever.  Video below:

Because the blog is difficult to navigate, I went through and found all the relevant posts and put them in order (might be missing a few posts, but it should be easy to follow along.)
