I decided to make my brewstand from wood. I have seen some awesome brewstands made from metal but I am no welder. So when I saw people using wood I thought that was the way to go. I can cut wood and hammer a nail so it seemed logical, plus the cost was much cheaper.
I used simpson-strong-ties to put it all together, while modifying a basic design they had on their website.
Here's a pic showing the start of construction:
Here's the stand completely finished, but before staining:
Here's the stand finished and stained with all the pieces in place. Two outdoor burners, both with their own propane tanks:

And my favorite feature, my nifty paddle holder!!!:
