Hey bumzc that's a very nice looking sturdy stand. Could probably park a truck on top of it!
I got my wood cut (even cut it length-wise to match my stand's dimensions exactly) and angled and the rounded corners cut with the router.
It was my first time working with a circular saw and router so I am very new to this.
Overall I'm pretty pleased though I will have to do a little fine sanding.
Then I screwed them together to form the top and bottom of the canopy. Screwing angled wood together is very very difficult. I think I did ok, but I'm going to have to hide a little bit with sanding and some wood putty.
