Has anyone used canopy fittings to construct a waist-high table or stand for both media beds & DWC trays? I specifically want to know how much weight such a construction could handle. The 1" fittings can be used with 1" EMT tubing. I think these could certainly handle the weight. http://www.canopymart.com/canopy-fitting-selection.html

Check with the manufacturer. I suspect some of these can come with different wall thicknesses and that makes a difference in the strength. 1" seems a bit undersized to me but I haven't used any of these so take this comment with a grain of salt.

Yeah, being made for canopies they don't look very sturdy and I would think that supporting a full media bed could be pushing it.

2x4s are cheap and can hold serious weight.
