For me, that's what this forum is all about.

For those that want to build but don't want to weld and want to keep it light, try checking out material from 80/20 Inc http://www.8020.net/. I use this stuff and it's great. It's extremely similar to the material Blichmann uses to make the Top Tier, but it's aluminum instead. Can't advise cost though...I get my material from discarded stuff at work I'm building a gravity stand with it now and will post when finished.

I went with wood, and it breaks down for storage, as I have no garage or basement...

mine fits into the "closet", and plugs into the wall, running off of the kitchen sink in a 1000 sq foot apartment...it is possible

These are all nice. I need to build something better than what I currently have which is two banjo burners on concrete blocks.

The stand is slowly getting there. Base paint is done. Next up is the finish work and then on to the burners and manifold.

Not finished but it's getting there. Plan to replace shelf brackets with more t-slot stock and add some more
