NICE wooden brew stands!
 
Any pics? I have seen one or two here... I am thinking about making a NICE dark cherry stained wooden stand for my version of the Brutus 10. Topped off with highly polished kegs. Just looking for pics to get some good ideas!

Thanks!

You mentioned elsewhere that you might put it in the basement? Will you be going electric?

That stand looks so much nicer than any metal stand I have seen.

I do agree that it's a showpiece but the drawbacks to wood are obviously the bulk, weight and potential fire harzard given the burners. The benefit is the relative ease of building without welding skills.

I feel the exact same way, I want to build something close and I can't weld. But with all these awesome looking wood setups like scuba's it seems almost neater in a way. I plan on putting steel plate on top of all my surfaces and screwing them down with flat head allens to help with burning issues!

Yeah, even better would be to put a tiny air gap between the metal heat shields and the wood by using washers as spacers. If you have any scrap yards nearby, keep an eye out for stainless sheet. The one by me always has stainless countertops and banged up stainless prep stations out of restaurant gutting.

I just bought a wooden brew stand last weekend. It's down in my storage unit at the moment and I'll be getting it out to brew on Sunday. I'll take some pictures of it for your viewing pleasure. It's not as pretty as Scuba's... but then again I don't think I've seen a nicer one either. Nice job Scuba! :mug:
