Set up a DIY skimmer for a 6 gal? a challenge to you!

Ok, I am on a mission! I have access to a fabulous shop full of tools, I know how to use them, and a plumber uncle... I have a Eclipse 6 SW and wish to create a very small protein skimmer.
But the only posts I have seen either are for much larger tanks, or involve a sump. In a few years (a home and 100gal later) will be great... but I want to provide the best home possible for a future pistol shrimp/goby sybiosis now... sigh
My tank sits on the kitchen table (away from lights, chemicals, etc.) but we live near a continuous construction zone (don't ask) so dust bunnies grow to cosmic size around here. Thus a sump won't work since it is in an open area... and space is a premium in my tiny apt, so I can't create a cool stand with an area for a sump.
So it has to be small and preferably attach to the tank on the back or side, oh and quiet.
Anyone up to THAT challenge?

Have you seen KingVinnie's DIY pages?

Most if not all the designs would need to be shrunk in your case..
