I used sheet styrene for the base, square tube for the upright with a smaller square tube to fit inside. For the top I just used c channel. The handles are paper clip cut and bent.

Nice!
Did you drill holes into the inner upright square stock for adjustable height too?
Thanks for the tip

Yes, I just drilled through both square rods at different heights so they are adjustable.
