this is the stand I built not long after bow season opened and have so far killed 2 does from. Used scrap wood and 3.5" galvanized nails. Treated wood with a little thompson's water seal and some spray paint for camo. Of course I will keep an eye on all the nails to make sure they are secure and make sure the stand feels solid throughout the season. I don't expect to get more than a couple years out of it safely, but for now it's a nice little spot to hunt.

Dry box for storage, also a bow holder (not shown) -



The view of where I shot my first doe, just to the left of that cluster of trees -



I have not built a seat yet, so I use a folding stool or lawn chair -





This pic was taken before I spray painted:
