I was thinking of maybe a TV stand or a coffee table, but not sure if it could hold the full weight, as it'll be well over 500 lbs with the water and sand. Any suggestions or ideas? I would do a DIY, but I lack the tools and the funds to really invest into getting everything together. Thanks!
I've had good success with Craigslist or thrift stores for this type of thing. I found the perfect size stand in a thrift store for $12, and sanded it down, and refinished with stain to a dark expresso color I wanted. Not a bad one day project, and it looks great.
I lived in Culver City for years, also North Hollywood - where are you in So California???
