You can get them from a fair few places now, we still use the ones we got people to weld up after nicking sparkles metal conduit decades ago

For me the stand don't matter it is all about a good lump of wood for the board.
Just a bit of 9mm ply off site has always done just fine.
1m x 1m for floating and 900 x 900 for skimming. I've had the same ones for about 8 years now.

Mine is 18mm marine ply and I think it is bigger than 1m x 1m and I chopped the corners off as well

Way unnecessary overkill mate. My 9mm boards were fine even when loading them up with S&C from a hod.
I've also never understood why people cut the corners off their boards, it's exactly where my hawk handle sits whilst ruling off.

Buy 8 lengths 3/4" steel ,cut down to the height of your belly button, take to welder (garage, metal fabricators etc) offer them as a drink to weld together. I did this 20 years ago . Stand still strong now
