    Looks great. Very nice fab skills. The only constructive criticism I could add is to add a support like shown in the pic attached. It just seem like it would strengthen it quite a bit.

    Thanks for the compliment, and your recommendation for the support bracket that is a great idea. I think it will be okay without it, but will definitely make one if needed.

    How much $$ did it end up costing you to make? Looks great.

    Great job, looks like you're pretty clever. How long did it take you to fab it together?
