There is now news about wooden end cheeks. But ask a carpenter (german: "Schreiner" or "Tischler") to do a pair just for you. One needs to cut these and drill the 5 holes for the 5 screws on the side of the Minitaur. And then substitute these 5 screws with longer ones that will reach into the Minitaur through the wooden cheeks. Getting black ones might be a a problem in most hardware stores here in Germany. If you have the tools, this would take lees then one hour for cutting the cheeks, sandpaper them and drilling the holes. You could easily do your own finishing and assembling at home.
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Will these be available to dealers in UK & Europe? I don't fancy paying postage from America to UK.

Very nice indeed! But they charge $101 (!) for international shipping which is absurd. I would order instantly if they could send them via USPS.

Source Distribution (UK MOOG Distributors) told me they will be for sale in UK £33. plus VAT. They could not give me a definite date though.
