While it's not exactly super light weight, it is very sturdy for its size. I was looking for something really solid for larger/heavier pots when family camping/backpacking with my penny alcohol stove. This is what I came up with, I am very happy with how the design turned out. Right now it tips the scales at 1.75 oz.

Looks well made. Nice work!!!

Do you attach the pieces together for storage and fold them flat while attached?

The stand assembles/disassembles very easily. When the pieces are together, they cannot be flattened, that is part of what gives the stand its stability. For storage just I slide the pieces apart as shown in the first photo.

On another note... The weight of the stand could probably be reduced by experimenting with different types/thicknesses of materials. I just used aluminum that I could find locally here at Home Depot. Perhaps I should do a little more looking around for different aluminum/titanium rods to see how low it can go while still maintaining good strength.
