Yep.
"Block form" is know as barstock or squarestock. You can get it from well-renowned companies for okay prices.

this.

i would start with maybe 6x6x3/4 piece of plate and go to town. if you need any help with anything let me know.

after looking on mcmaster-carr, it would be cheaper to get 1" thick stock. this would aid with clean up and fixturing as well.

I'm guessing he'll be Dremmeling. Best case scenario, band saw, drill press, and Dremmel/files for the fine work.

I'm curious how this turns out. Some people are incredibly skilled with minor league tools.
