AH! Now this is a helpful answer. I already have some folding metal sawhorses and a spare fork clamp from my truck, so I could just mill some slots in the sawhorse and mount the cleat there for adjustability to accommodate different bikes and machine some nylon to hold the BB in place and I'll be good for what I need it for. Thanks for the idea! I was overthinking the design and planning on making it look and work like one of the store-bought. Keep it simple stupid.
