What do you think the total cost would be for all the components? I could CNC some of the pieces in wood or aluminum but, being USA, it's hard to get anything in metric.

I'm also curious the price difference would be from kit built to buying one outright :)

Depending on the cost for the wooden enclosure, I would guess that the cost for this will be in the same ballpark as the alu-extrusion UM2 (& extended) that you can find on Thingiverse.

Sorry for going a bit off topic, but...
Are those printers on lazy susans?
That's actually kind of brilliant for easy access to the back.
The UMO are on vibration dampening "legs" I suspect? Don't the UM2's need them?

@Blizz: I have my UM2 also on a lazy susan bearing. I created a nice stand for it from an IKEA Bekväm serving cart and some additional parts. The power cord goes under the UM2 through a whole in the middle down to the power supply which is fixed to the cart. This way I can turn it very easy to change filament, etc. If you are interested, I can create a post with some pictures of it.

Update: Here is the post.

Yes, the printers are on lazy susans, it is a very convinient solution for easy access to the filament spool :-)

About the dampening feet, i would not even say that the UMO "need" vibration dampening feet, but it helps with the sound. The UM2's have a lot less resonances, mostly due to the Dibond material.

Good idea...
... I see a direct application for my 'marble thrust bearings' ;)
