Surface plate finish up

The finished surface plate stand.
A steel stand for a small surface plate with drawers   drawer

I sanded down all the welds, slapped on a really crappy paint job (I had it but ran out of the black towards the end) and pimped it with some stick on vinyl pin striping. The ladder rung holes are the drawer pulls (the holes & knot alignment are pure accident but once I saw it that made the decision use them as pulls). The drawers are almost full extension as they [almost] ride against the rail above them.
The thing that really bugs me is it really rings. Even with around 100 pounds of stone and iron on it, smack the plate and stand vibrates for quite a while.
