Custom EAV

Hi guys,

I am about to take on a rather large project with which I will need to create multiple custom modules. I have created many custom modules already, but this one will be slightly different. I would like to add a new EAV object, very similar to the Products object model. I would like to use many of the core EAV models to save on development time. I have actually studied this out for a week and am fairly familiar with the classes I will need. I have created the following tables in the database:


which mimic the catalog_product_entity tables.

The question I have is, does anybody know if this type of additional EAV module possible extending Magentos prewritten classes, and if so, what approach would you take?
