'OT - Regulations on selling custom projects in th'
As someone based in Scotland, I recently had a call from someone in Atlanta,
enquiring about a custom box of tricks. I wasn't too sure about FCC
approval though.. How does it relate to one-off designs? Do you have to
submit to an approval process, or is good design practice good enough.

Interesting question! I think you may be exempt.
I've never had to think about it in a case of one-offs before.
I assume you are talking about part 15 (radiated noise) and not part 68

Recently I saw in the FCC Daily Digest a bunch of experimental
licenses granted to allow the operation and testing of low power
communications devices that would normally be subject to part 15
approval, but had not yet been approved.
There are various part 15 regulations that may apply to "one off"
projects. Check out these at http://hallikainen.com/FccRules ...
Sec. 15.7 Special temporary authority.
Sec. 15.23 Home-built devices.
As far as I can tell, the only exemption is 15.23's exemption for
home built devices for personal use.

If the "Box of Tricks" is a custom single item, i.e., not mass produced, I
very seriously doubt that the FCC will even care. However, if there are going
to be thousands of these little units produced then you or your customer will
have to obtain FCC approval.
Also, if you use a UL approved power supply or wall wart you won't have a
problem with UL either.
