My Chilli Pepper has been on a stainless steel kitchen supply workbench for so long that I blanked out when I brought out my old Jen Ken for my friend to use to slump something last week.

When I last used it 2-3 years ago it was on tile then raised on fire bricks. Brain-dead me plunked it on my butcher block kitchen table and used it three times in the last week. (I also have no sense of smell, if that gives you a hint of where I'm going with this).

I went to move the kiln yesterday, and this is what I found under the kiln:

Morals of story:
(a) Don't be an idiot like me
(b) Wood burns
(c) Use all brain cells, and if you are lacking in brain cells, borrow some

Default Concrete tops

Mine is on a wooden shelfing system slightly taller then my work table.
I have 2 in off concrete ontop of the shelf.
Hardibacker, Wonderboard and concrete boardsare the same basic thing which would work as well.
I put wooden frame around my stand added some chicken wire then mix some concrete and poured two inches of concrete (Just used a 60 lb bag of ready mix). Took off the wooden frame and now have a concrete topped stand. You do need to make sure your stand will take the weight mine stated it would hold 200lbs and it is doing just fine.
