I am looking to build a metal stand for media grow bed f&d. Bed size 2 4x4 beds. What gauge or schedule pipe would I need? I don’t want to over do it. Has anyone made a hoarder stand with pipe from Lowe’s ?

Thank you

What media will you be using? And what are you making the beds out of? I don't know what a hoarder stand is.,

Probably the best way for beds that size is just use IBC cages they are engineered to carry a lot of weight are light and easy to move around cover them with something like pallet wood if you want to hide them .

I use them as I can get them for free (nothing beats that) and I can shift them around with my tractor.

Pic shows my evolving never ending hobby , the cut off pieces of cage are handy to sit on top and trellis cucumbers tomatoes ect

If you want to build your own have a look at the grow bed frames that are sold for 8 x 4 beds build like that and they wont collapse on you .

there are a few threads on this already - use the search on "grow bed stands" to get lots of ideas

eg. couple to start you off

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25644
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=29839&hilit=grow+bed+stands
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=27360


Colum talks about stands and home made grow beds quite a bit
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=28729
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=19967&start=975

The general search will flag up lots of member variants to get ideas from.
Interchange stand for frame, weld etc


using galvanised pipe (as used for posts in compound security fencing etc) has also been discussed around the forum.
