Looks like it turned out pretty well for you. Since the fittings are the expensive part, I wonder if this design could be built for less with wooden pieces. Also I've seen a couple of people with pull cart carriers built out of concrete form tubes. I wonder if you could improve the disc-preserving qualities of the design by incorporating something like them as half-round shelves. I'm guessing the 8" tubes, which you can find at your local Home Depot, would be the best size for your discs.

I have no idea how these would work. I used nice thick stripping to pad the piping so hopefully we'll be good

Curious...were the fittings you bought cheaper than normal plumbing fittings in the store? I can see that they have a nicer finished look to them...looks great. Also wondering if you looked into the pricing for plastic electric conduit/fittings. I looked at the link you provided, and it's been awhile since I've paid attention to plumbing Sch 40 prices, but it seems like what you bought was kinda pricey in comparison. So, just wondering...because I like it! Great idea.
