I dont like shopping, so I didnt even try to find a wok to make a cheap dish. I used a road sign instead. Here is some pictures. I used f=(d^2)/(16c) to find the focus.

Here I tried to tie up the adapter just to make it a bit neater.

I havent tested it yet, and I still need a way to mount/make it stand up.
