That looks about as heavy as the scroll saw itself. Nice Job!

Nice job. Looks like it should be around for quite some time. Happy scrolling with your new stand.

That looks great. Can't tell from pics if it is slanted. If not you might consider raising the back. My Dewalt stand tilts forward makes visibility better and scrolling more comfortable.

Heavy wooden legs work good for things like this. Certainly this weighs more than a suitable steel framed stand would weigh - and you quite likely made it with leftovers - very resourceful. Weight and stability are not the same thing, but it appears here that you have both. When you're making cuts, the last thing you want is a scroll saw that is going to back away from you or vibrate. Well executed! Keep-up the good work.

From what I see, you did a great job. I am a newcomer to working with wood and have discovered that working with wood has only one restriction; and that is one's imagination. (The one area I am weak in.) Keep up the great work. -WoodDawg
