I just build a new stand using all treated lumber and cedar. It has 90 degree metal braces, a camper door, custom fit Deer View windows, "elevator" brackets for the legs, and a metal roof. It measures 4 1/2' X 6 1/2' X 5 1/2' and sits about 7' off the ground. My home computer is down...can someone help me post the pictures of it (I have them on my cell phone)??

That looks awesome! That cedar will last a long time with no maintenance. How much did it cost you to build it?

If I were you I'd wire it to some cedars at the base of the tree. The wind will pull those t-post's right out of the ground. I learned this the hard way.

Great Job. up

I'm actually thinking of creating some sort of a basket underneath it and filling it with rocks...and connecting it to the bottom of the stand. It sits in the edge of a field and the only tree is the one in the background. I saw someone post a picture of it on here at one point.

oh and it ran me about $800, but I spared no expense and used nothing but treated decking screws for the whole build.

Very Nice Sir up

May i suggest put a eye bolt in the center of the bottom, and buy a heavy duty screw in anchor and run that in the ground (like the ones they anchor modular trailers with) use braided wire and a adjustable tensioner in the center...


Or a eye bolt and run a cable down and install a tensioner fill a huge was tub or rubber tub with sac crete to crete a center pull...let me find some pics...Great Build up
