One thing to consider is waste and standard lengths of metal supplies.
You cant keep those rules all of the time or it will limit you.

Angle iron for the most part comes in 20 foot lengths.
The factors for 20 are 2,4,5,10 not including numbers like 2.5 and so on.
For those that forgot math class like I did a factor is a number that can be divided evenly into another number.
I use factors all of the time when I design things to cut down on waste at work.

The average stove top is 24 inches you could make it 30 inches deep and still get 8 pieces, not including saw waste.

I think 24 to 30 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet wide is more than big enough?
