That "windscreen" you mentioned started out to be just a place for me to put a NAME on the rig - I even had wooden letters cut. But then I changed my mind, and now as you say, it's a place to hang stuff to dry, and will soon be where I hang the control panel, once its done. It is handy, that's for sure!

Well, your post kept me up all night, now I can't stay awake here at work...lol
But I think I have decided to modify my design. still using an upright and not a step design, but will mount the shelves between two mast instead of one.

My first attempt at a 3-tiered rig. Made 3 separate sections for better mobility. Still had to put wheels on the first and second tiers. It's heavy as hell. I really need to learn to weld.

Anyway, it's nothing fancy, but hopefully it can get the job done. Action shots to come soon!

Looks very nice! What is that black material you are using to protect the wood from heat?
