Angle iron, drill, 4 1/2" grinder with cutoff wheel, and bolts. You can make it any way you want. Plus you can disassemble and change without cutting anything. I worked with pvc for quite a while, trust me bad idea.

Unistrut is like an adult erector set. They have tons of different fitting types for joining, 3d and 4d corners, L's, Tee's, etc. Very slick, but SOOO expensive.

Where does everyone get their angle? Scrap yard? I've been bird dogging bed frames on heavy trash pickup nights, etc. They're all a little different, but I don't really care.

Here's the setup I use right now. I don't have anywhere to store a brew stand so this is my high quality 3-tier for now. For structural support the lower bin contains a float tube w/ fins and the upper contains my chest waders and boots.

Hot rolled angle is usually REALLY cheap from a steel supply house. Check the Yellow Pages.

unistrut or something like 80/20 is great way to build something that looks like you had it custom fabricated. It might cost a little more than using bolted angle iron but it's so much more versatile and fun.

A lot of the printing equipment we use at my shop is either assembled on an 80/20 frame, or has 80/20 rails bolted onto it because it allows us to add components on (lamps, fans, etc) very easily and anywhere we want.

I should start taking pictures of my brew day, but what I had setup was the turkey fryer on the ground sitting next to a Ice Cube which was really just a stand for the Rubbermaid round cooler mash-tun. I put the HLT on the picnic table but it wasn't high enough, so I balanced it on one of these:
