Just to let you guys know. the stand build was inspired by the DIY king Joey.
A big credit to him.

Jammer are you going to double brace the ends like you did the center. Looks great so far. I never used screws on my stands I always used a nail gun. Do you have to drill pilot holes for the screws.

My personal opinion. the screws work better than nails. and yes I did drill first, then screws. the drill bit size is 9/64 and the screws are 8x2 1/2 its says gold screws but its not.

And guys, I'm sure there are plenty of you "who been there done that" on building your own stand. but would like to share my experience on this amazing tool. specially if you are doing this by yourself. it is called corner clamp or 90 degree clamp. very handy and it helped me a lot. got this from menards for 3.29
