Looks just perfect Col
It probably wouldn't do for everyone. I originally had a thick rubber pad on the front foot and small rubber castors on the back (to help with moving it and isolating vibration even more) but of course being rubber they had a certain amount of bounce about them which encouraged it to tip over sideways while being moved around. If small kids were in the habit of running or playing in the work area it might also not be particularly safe, but seeing as there's only me and the missus now I do like it. Even I can move it single-handedly and with the single leg being in front it's a god send when my spine's playing up and I need to constantly rearrange myself.

Col.

I read somewhere that the 3 legged version is more stable than a 4 legged version????

Absolutely Rob.
A 4 legged stand needs a totally flat floor to be effective.
A 3 legged stand will always find it's own stability thus making it a good choice if you intend moving it around on varying levels of uneven floor.

Definitely true but 4 legs are easy to level if you need to and it's better if you want to use the space under for storage like my cupboard and Drawer.
Mine is made heavily to cut down on any vibration plus I have rollers/casters under so it can me moved about if needed, folks may think casters a bad idea as it might move about but actually it does not move at all during use.
