Nice jfulton, I really like that. I'm just itching looking at some of these cool wood sculptures until I have time to start working on my own.

I concur with that, I just bought the hardware for my wooden rig build - and it came out to about $60 - almost the same if not more than what I think the lumber is going to cost me...

Thought I'd show you guys my home made system. 10 gallon capacity. Custom built from the ground up by myself and a buddy. I did all the welding on it. I typically build a lot of Jeep parts so I probably went a little overkill as that is what I am used to doing on the Jeep front. I built this system about 5 years ago now so I don't remember every brand part we used, but here is a rough parts list:
3 15.5 gallon kegs (got for free from my old job)
2 Outdoor turkey fryer burners
2 brewers pumps (i think melling)
copper tube
various valves
pipe wrap insulation
hoses and tubes
2 BBQ ignitors
2 propane gas valves
propane regulator (12psi)
2 work spot lights (i often brew at night)
1 extension cord
120V toggle switches
misc electrical stuff, box, conduit, connectors, etc
4 4" locking heavy duty casters
a 2 ton hydraulic bottle jack
level
sight glass
old steel lamp post we got for free
about 50' of 1"x1" steel tube
expanded mesh
sheet metal

We used the lamp post (4"x4" steel) to make the legs. We wanted the system to sit high enough to store all of our fermenters underneath it as my garage space is at a premium. Welded some plate and the casters to it. Layed out the kegs and a propane tank to get our length and proceeded to build the frame from there. from left to right we have:
the propane tank area, seperated from the boil kettle by a heat shield.
the boil kettle. One turkey fryer underneath it.
the mash tun. fully insulated and contained and seperated from both the boil kettle and hot water tank by heat shields. Top is cut to fit the lid from our old mash cooler. holds temp perfectly. Has a false bottom and hole in the bottom connected to one of the pumps for recirculating and transfering wort to the boil kettle. Also, its on hinges and tilts out for easy cleaning.
the HLT, again seperated by a heat shield from the mash tun with a turkey burner underneath and fed to the second pump.














so what do you guys think? let me know if you want more details or more detailed pics of something specific

Probably the best tippy dump design I have seen. I love it. Full insulation with good aesthetics and a practical way to clean it out.

Very well done.

thanks. Since i took those I have added a water filter set up mounted to the side next to my HLT. I've been making some small improvements to it lately as I finally got back into brewing.
