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:

And this is the way I'm going with mine! Looks really really great. Did you use any water-proofing? I'd like to feel ok about spraying mine down.

Here I thought I was going to see fine mortise and tennon joinery. Just kidding, everything is looking very good and also very strong. Great job so far. I really like how you documented your build.
