after building several versions of tree stands using used barbaque frame tubing scavenged at the local dump I settled on this design which used less tubing and gave a stronger frame. The stand measures 30" deep and 37" wide at the widest point. Weighs 19 lbs. It is very stable when ratchet straped to the tree, the extra large base is real nice. I'm going to make a couple of small changes like a more comfortable seat with back rest and a foot rest but this is the best stand I've been in and I made it myself.

loadtest

forgot to mention doing a loadtest on the stand. Had my brother and myself on the stand and did some light bouncing. Held up well with about 330lbs bouncing on it
