Not if my life depended on it :P

It took way more work than I thought it would, and I didn't even do
100% of it (a coworker cut the strut for me with the chop saw at

It wouldn't have been as difficult to make if the weather wasn't
threatening to rain all day when I was staining (It rained on me twice
during the weekend) or if I had brought everything to work and did it
there (boring myself to death while watching the stain dry.)  I could
give you the plans so you could build your own though; I drew 'em up
myself... of course, they've got all sorts of grease and coffee stains
on 'em now :-)
