You're going to need a stage

You'll probably need a stage as well. I build stages and sell a kit with instructions for building the stage on my website. The price is pretty reasonable for an intermediate level stage and it requires the least amount of setup. Puppet Productions and One Way Street also sell stages as well as other places on the web (just go to Yahoo and enter +puppet +stage in the search). Top of the line rod stages run about $700 and up.
