All I needed to make this stand was a few pieces of wood, three to be exact. Two pieces of 1x2's, and a base piece, anything available, about 10in. x 20 or so. For hardware, I used one bolt, 5/16 x 4in, one cabinet hinge (see photos), one piece of conduit about 18in. long, a few bolts to secure the conduit to the wood pieces, and one screw for the one upright that is stationary.
