Well I figured I would start a thread for this... just to show that I have been doing something.

Bought the lumber, bolts, washers and all that wonderful stuff on Presidents day. Then with the help of a buddy of mine, started cutting and putting the main frame together(pictures later). Tonight I got the top boards put on and am now taking a break from the sanding to let my hands rest and so that I can keep you guys entertained as much as possible.

So far I have gotten about 3/4 of the top sanded with 80grit, trying to get off as much of the random ass stamps that they put on the wood as possible. If anyone has some suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

No suggestions, good luck though. Looking forward to what you come up with.

What stamps do you mean? I'm not aware that lumber was stamped (except maybe wolmanized lumber). Either way, my only suggestion is to use a palm sander or orbital sander to get rid of any ink stamps. That would probably reduce the amount of elbow grease involved.

quarter-sheet palm sanders are worth their weight in gold (okay, that may be an exaggeration). But, it is an essential tool for any DIYer - wood or metal work!

I just left any imperfections in my stand... There weren't many, but I just figured it was just added character. It's a brew stand man. You are going to drip wort on it, and it is going to get beat up anyway. Stain it... Seal it up with no fewer than 3 coats of Poly... Brew on it!
I built a Kal-inspired brewery last year. I will hope to answer any of your questions. Plus... have you found the discussion forum on Kal's site? Good group of guys over there, all willing to help out. I have the same screen name there as here.

Ok... first question... why are my pieces different height? Is the a way of fixing that or do I just deal with it?

A picture would help out tremendously. A close-up and an angle like mine. I'm not sure what you are talking about being different height.

BTW, I mounted my long middle beam across the top a few inches back from what Kal indicates. That allowed me to bottom drain my keggles with them being in the center of the stand.
