Inspired by VanderBeer's thread on his folding wooden brew stand, I've started working on an all metal adaptation (or adulteration) made from $10 worth of used bed frames that I picked up at the junk store down the street. I still have a little way to go on this project, but I thought I'd post the "plans" to get any feedback that others may have before I cross the point of no return on this (i.e. potential stability and strength issues). Since I don't know how to weld, I'm through bolting the whole thing with 1/4 inch machine srews. I'm doing this with the bare minimum tools...3 small C clamps, 2 vicegrips, a small grinder, a drill, and an assortment of simple handtools...so it takes some time.

The raw materials:

The master "plan"

What it will look like folded...if all goes according to plan:

If it doesn't rain tonight I'll take some pics of what I have done so far and post for all to see.... I'm hoping to have this up and running by the weekend so I can give it a proper test (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/cheers.gif)
