Define build plans:

I did a bit of searching on the internet until I found a series of plans I was satisfied with. I came across a series of plans from a guy at WestPoint. He used 1.5″ square tubing in his, and since I wasn’t going to be boiling a swimming pool, I felt that 1″ would work just fine.

 

So I went to the local steel shop in town and picked up 40′ of 1″ square tubing. Several cuts and welds later, I came up with this:
