concrete (cinder) block tower with wood chopping block for turntable stand

Any suggestions from users who have done, or contemplate doing this. I looked at concrete blocks at Lowes last night. I made two stacks of 3 side by side, plus a solid block (without the center openings) as the top block. This gave me about 34" in height. Then the thought is either a Walnut or Bamboo chopping board for a top shelf. I would use four cork or cork/rubber sandwich (2"X 2") squares to couple the wood chopping block to the concrete tower. I am also considering an Isoacoustics platform as a more expensive alternative. Fire away....?


I have used a tubular steel Sound Organisation stand with my Linn Sondek for 40 years. No complaints about bounciness or ringing. 
The ton of bricks solutions seems like overkill to me. 

Wasn't expecting so many responses. It's a dedicated room, which I have free reign to do as I wish. There are ways to spruce up the look...I think after a trip to the fabric store and a little creativity, it can be made to look acceptable. I moved the table over from  an Ikea Square (LACK?) table to my Lignolab rack. I wanted to keep the Ligno for my main setup, and use the blocks so I could situate my systems on different walls. But I'm going to see how the Luxman table performs on the Ligno rack. I think $2500 will buy a nice audio rack, but I just want to keep this system at a certain budget. I allowed myself a second system but promised myself to keep it sane. Another words, no $3K audio racks. 

One can spend the money, expend the energy, or do a bit of both....
It can be many things, functional, practical, pricey, cheap....

As long as it does what you think and/or feel you/'It' needs....:)

should be fine.  add some iso-acoustics isolators if you need to, or continue in the diy mode and place a simple cush-pad under the turntable like is used for floors... you can buy a couple feet off a roll at home depot, it's grey rubbery material and actually works pretty well as vibration isolation... cut a 16'x16' square and place TT on it, or four 4'x4' squares just under the feet of the TT.  If you need to... try without, first; most TTs these days (and even decent ones from 30-40 years ago) have pretty good vibration isolation already
