I'm not going as crazy as a few around here, but this will be a single tier, 3 keggle setup. 2in x 2in 16 gauge steel.













That's it so far.

I went to the prestigious University of YouTube. Seriously there are tons of videos that can show you how to weld. It takes some practice but it's not that difficult.

Very nice! Your 45s are impeccable.
How does the mitre saw hold up to the steel? We only use chop saws, and your photos have me thinking. I'm just concerned they wouldn't hold up the the abuse and heat.

I am guessing the miter saw is the dewalt metal saw, want one SO bad, super clean cuts and accurate...i gave up on the old chop saw for miters...nice looking rig

We were cutting miters on a chop saw last week and the blade/saw was deflecting so bad we had to use a bench disk sander to square up the cuts. I was thinking of putting a metal blade in my Dewalt compound miter saw and using that instead. It has to be much more accurate.

I ask the metal shop about the metal blades on my miter saw, thay said they spin to fast and the blade will come apart. Have ruined a cheap miter saw with the metal chopsaw blades in it....good cuts but the saw doesnt last long....

It's definitely not a metal saw - you can see the yellow low friction plastic insert in the cutting deck and none of the Dewalt metal saws has one of those. If I had to guess it's a DW713 single bevel miter model...

Cheers!
