Default How many feet of steel needed for brew rig?

Hello everyone. Iím getting ready to build a single tier brew table. Something on wheels with a pump to move from one keg to the other. I found a design on here that I really like. Check out my blog and you will see it. Itís the first post you will see. Atomic Donkey Brewing

My question is does anyone know about many feet of steel it would take? I emailed the person who posted the picture but havenít gotten a response yet. Iím looking to purchase the materials as early as today but hopefully no later than Saturday.

Thank you for any help you can provide. CHEERS!!

Not sure, but you could use Google SketchUp to build it, then measure everything out in the program.

Huh, never heard of this before. I'm on lunch break so I do believe I will mess around with this. Thanks.

You'll have to commit to learning sketchup because the learning curve is pretty steep. However, it's so cool that you'll be modeling things for no reason after a while.

It's even better with home projects with google earth backgrounds.

Im still screwing around with it. Pretty fun stuff. In my job I use a lot of GIS so this is right up my alley.

4 - 60"
6 - 19"
