Fun times! I would love to do more of this. Total cost of materials was about $210, and that includes a bunch of hardware most people would already have, and a decent amount of extra aluminum square tubing and angle.

Shop wanted $900ish, which my boss wasn’t having. I spent a good 8 hours working on everything so... Saved a bit of money, and gained some knowledge for the company. Win-win.
