You said in another one of your links that you were a carpenter? If so how hard is it to make a stand with minimal tools provided that the local hardware will cut the lumber to any length I need. And to clarify the tools I have to work with are a set of screw drivers, a dremel, and screw gun. I could get a few things more but really don't have the space for anything big or money for anything too much more.

I have a speed square and tape from building my sump so with all my tools and the addition of a hammer it should all work out?

What type of wood did you use, and do you have a sump under the stand?
