A metal table is always a good sturdy support for a machine. You can also make an extremely sturdy and stable bench out of wood. I made one for my larger milling machine using 4x4s (two 2x4s screwed and glued together) for legs and a double layer of 3/4 inch plywood also screwed and glued together for the bench top. I made the top 3 feet x 3 feet and made a shelf on the bottom to hole the accessories like the dividing head, rotary table etc. I don’t know what materials are the most available in your part of the world but in the U.S.A. wood is fairly inexpensive and plentiful.
