Need a new Lathe Stand

>After watching a Raffan video I noticed,For the first time,that my lathe is too low. I guess I I have noticed in the past it was not quite right but...
Anyway, I have an older Rockwell/Delta model on the original stand with a box of sand underneath. But I was wondering if anyone has a plan for a unit that has some heft to it? Maybe a plywood box affair with sand ballast?
Also anyone ever make some type of bed extension for turning longer spindles?
Thanks
I guess I am getting bit by the Turning Bug!!
