ill add that ..............the more area your stand has for a foot print the better off you will be - - -i.e. 4 legs is more dangerous than 6 or even 8 legs because all that weight is distributed onto the feet........doesn't matter how massive the stand is the square inches on the floor that cary the weight

my mother has a beautiful hutch in her kitchen's huge and it has little tiny about 800 lbs of wood are standing on about 4 square inches ......and yes there are indent marks in their very nice hard wood becareful

a building inspector can tell you for prolly a 50 dollar courtesy call

useless fact - - - - 100% of our body weight is carried on 2% of our bodies {our feet, lol} same principle
