Know there are many of these but I wanted to document my own and get some advice along the way.

I bought the steel from lowes.

Used a miter saw with a metal blade to cut the steel.

Put it together using a thread on here, I didn't use the steel plates in the corners yet (I sat on it and moved around with no problems so I might not)

Found a easy and cheap low pressure manifold that I liked on here.

That's a great idea! How much did the steel bars cost if you don't mind me asking?

I wish I could take credit but not my idea, I spent about 200 on the steel.

You would have saved some $ by ordering the steel from McMaster... even with shipping, but either way, looking good so far. Mine is similar, with an identical gas manifold. I have run 7 brew sessions on it in 2011, and so far so good! I was thinking about painting mine, but not sure how it would hold up to scratching and burnt wort.

True but I didn't want to wait for it to come in...I was way to excited to get going! But it looks like I would have saved 40 bucks before shipping, not sure how much shipping would have been. I like your pump setup, probably going to be using that.
