Pretty cool. The main reason you don't see many people doing this is exactly what you found, to do it right, it's not exactly cost effective, especially since most canisters come with media, tubing, and all of that. The other reason you don't see many is they are trying to make a Nano canister out of things like tuperware or similar, or doing something really large wanting to use 5 gallon buckets. Things that are cheap and found around the house just aren't strong enough.
