Mine sits on a folding aluminium working platform thingy that I also use for decorating lol…. I brew in the garden so it all needs to be moveable!!

I put mine on an old B&D Workmate. Works very well nice & stable.

Not stylish! Oh dear that could never do 😂. let's be honest here, my perfect support for this would be matt black powder coated perforated steel plate, with a chrome frame and lockable wheels - industrial chic, robust, reliable, cleanable and I can choose where to move it to and it stays solid where I put it! Me a control freak - never 😇.
So not a beer crate then.

So my desire for a sleek stylish brew stand has been tempered by the amount of bend visible in the glass during my last brew day. That wasn’t even with a full kettle either. So I’ve replaced the glass top with a bit of coated chip board. It’s nowhere near as smart (particularly after I accidentally drilled one of the screw holes all the way through 🤦‍♀️) , but it is a bit more practical. Hey compromising for practicality reasons is kind of ok.

Black Fablon?
Oooh 😯 that is properly tempting!. I do though describe myself in my professional role as a ‘militant pragmatist’. So while I would dearly love the stylish handsome and crisp edges of chrome, glass and steel, I think I’ll go with the heat resistant coated chipboard. Prizing low risk over style - hah, no possibility of metaphor here is there 🙄.

Kitchen worktop. And one of those steps used for aerobics to reach it for mashing in and out.

I have a very sturdy giant mechano type work bench. It works well as its got storage and drawers - in my garage. Only down side is I have to rig up a heath robinson hosepipe affair for cooling the wort. After about 6 brews in I now have it mastered as long as I don't "drink and brew!"

... as I don't "drink and brew!"
This has been the downfall of many brews, both home and pro. I went on a brewery tour years ago. It was a local microbrewery staffed by 3 self proclamied pissheads. One of the brews, they had been drinking and forgotten to take the top off the mash tun before adding the strike-water and grist. The ended up with about 1.5 tons of porridge all over the floor.
