Wing Stands

Once all the hand work on the ribs is complete, it is time to start thinking about fabricating the wings stands. Should I build four stands so I can work on both wings at the same time, or only one set? What material to use? Wood post or steel post? After a vast research of others builders and the fact I am building in the basement and have access to the floor joist above, and have access to lots of scrap metal tubing, angles, etc., therefore I went with the steel option.
