Default Cinder Block Brew Stand Build Thread

Well I finally deiced on how to build my brew stand...with cinder blocks! Couldnt be more simple to assemble. Its going to be gravity powered. Basically just steps going down. Pretty basic plan but very functional. I have quite a few cinder blocks but ill need some more. Should have enough to get half done with what I have. Probably enough to get through a brew session but well see.

So anyone seen someone do this before? If so lets see some pics.

I think Orfy employs the use of bricks/cinder blocks. Not solely, but I've seen them in his pictures.

I discovered Dean's site when I first began brewing. A great resource. Does he stop in here at all?
