I would suggest using pyramid foam to anyone decides to build their own!
(I just had a ton of egg crate laying around)
The materials I used:
4x8 Fine Grain particle board $17 (More than enough to make 2 boxes)
About 8 L brackets $4
2 basic hinges $3
6" Lag bolt to use as my mic mount $0.75
And the dimensions of each square I cut out (using a circular saw I already owned) was roughly 16"x16"x16"
And for ascetics, I used varnish on it and it was about $5

Awesome stuff! the price difference between that and what you would buy for something similar is mad!

My humble studio, which I recently set up with a lot of my fiancé's help. It's certainly come a long way off from where I began. And yes, it's another bedroom studio, but I like it a lot.

The tower on the lower right is a Cooler Master, my fiancé's old computer, which he built. It's got 4GB RAM, DDR2 (upgradable to 16) and 250GB HDD space I can play with. My processor is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ (3GHz). I could've used more HDD space, but other HDDs I have.... well they've prevented the PC from booting up. I think it sufficient.

I'm back on Windows 7, but 64-bit this time. Mic and MIDI keyboard are both Samson (Go and Graphite M32 respectively), speakers are Creative I-Trigue (2.1). They're about 5 years old, but still in perfect working order. I can now hear my mixing errors, where I previously couldn't.

I also recently acquired a nice pair of headphones. Specifically, Sennheiser HD201.

It may come across as depressing to some that my NGADM audition, Chant de l'Éveil, was done on a rickety, eight-year-old Acer laptop with a Celeron processor and broken screen hinges and missing keys.... I'm just grateful for this pleasant change of phase.

My studio looks like a tablet, because it's a tablet

I'd say your studio has certainly had a much-needed upgrade from your previous setup (which also was an improvement from, well... your phone :P).

What I'm especially of is seeing you happy and in a much better situation than you've been in the past year or so. Feels good to see! :)

Was able to make this for under 50 bucks, and the closest thing you can buy online is almost $350 (The porta-booth) and it doesn't look very sturdy.

Despite your effort, I cannot advice you to use this. You should rather remove reflections coming from behind the singer.
"The "filter" softens a little more the reverse sound incidence of the cardioid microphone. The mechanical "filter" itself generates hollow sounding comb filter reflections received by the microphone. The generated early reflections of the sound source in the studio room are not dampened by this.
The advertising promises that the "filter" can save to build a vocal booth. That would be a miracle."

Old gear, not even using monitors, loads of guitars and alcohol is a must. That's me mate in the pic, not me!

I'm just using this for voice acting, and it has landed me 2 paid jobs.
It basically prevents noise from bouncing around my apartment, it isn't a sound proofing solition, but it does a decent job preventing reverb from my walls, desk, etc.
