Stand to Hold Diffusion Panels?

Hello, all. I am DIY'ing a few diffusion panels that will range in size, the largest being 4' x 4'. I do not have any experience with stands, so I'm wondering if anyone can offer advice on a stand/grip type set up that I can use in a studio setting...
 
Appreciate any thoughts on this. (The panels will not weigh much at all, but will be pretty rigid, as I imagine the Lastolite panels are. Of course handling can be a little awkward).
Thank you.
 
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

How DIY do you want to be?

 

I imagine you can do something with PVC pipe and a bunch of fittings.

An actual weight would be far more helpful than “will not weigh much at all.”  I think that statement sums up most of the problems that you are having.  You’re not paying attention to the details.  

 

Sorry, to be critical, but working out the details, to the last dot, is the difference between success and failure.
