Well your not going to see the steel. If i do it in steel it will be skinned with wood. i just want it for the strength so it can be wide open underneath. I was thinking steel frame sitting on 2 2x6 planks so the weight goes across 3 floor joists. On the legs there will be a 6x6 steel plate for the feet. Not sure if i will need kickers from the leg to the underside of frame but will def add some steel from leg to leg for support so the legs dont move. The stand will look like its made out of wood
