How hard would it be to build a simple stand for a 20 long? And would it be cheaper than ordering a $50 metal one?

Nothing fancy, doesnt even need to be tall, just need it off the ground some. Itll be in my room so looks dont really matter.

about 3-4 2"x4"x8' and some nails and you should be able to put something together for less than $10 as long as you don't care its just unfinished wood. Might be a bit more expensive (but not to much), but I've been liking the options of using cinder blocks and 2"x4"s, no nails required nor much of any wood working skills besides cutting wood to length, plus it has a bit more modern look to it and you can change it around really easy

I'm sold on the cinder blocks and you can throw a table cloth over them and never see it. All sorts of great uses.

Or leave it uncovered and make a punk tank.
