how do u build a stand for a 180ga and it not be heavy?
Easy, 3/4 plywood and 1x front face construction! I'll bet none use 4x's and very few if any use 2x's.
Any pics, links to an example? i'm going to be doing a build for a 180 also so i'm open to ideas. thanks
Here you go, my thread from nearly 3 years ago when I built my 125 stand. Still rock solid and not a sign anywhere of weakness. I also recently built a 2nd stand out of nothing but some 2x framing and pocket holes. 125 on top and 75 on the bottom.
