Last night my friends and I began constructing my single tier stand. Having read a number of other people's builds on here I thought it only right to document mine as well.

First off a big thanks goes out to SouthernYankee's build as I'm using his build as the starting blocks for what I plan to do.

Secondly, I admit I'm most likely winging it 80 percent of the time and the other 20 percent I'm drinking so questions to me might not be your best bet

That said let's the pictures begin!

The metal: 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" 16g steel. Sixty feet cut into 5 foot lengths. Purchased locally from the Online Metal Store (but lucky for me they are local so no shipping costs)




Measure twice cut once?


Thanks to SouthernYankee for the design


Now we're talking


Cleaning up the edges


First Weld being laid down!


Taking shape


The workspace

Making it square


We've got vertical


Pretty colors


We're going to inlay a piece of wood for the lower shelf so we used some spare 1/2"x1/2" steel for that.


That's a wrap for the night. Hopefully get more done this weekend

Love the many pics. I want to do the same when I move out of the city and into a house. This thread will be a great resource, thanks for taking the time.

I hate to see these threads. I want to go outside and kick my cinder blocks and shaky table and make a stand now.

Go by the steel. The rest just seems to happen after that.
