Thanks for the replies…

So I’m reaching three conclusions: First, start with the legs. Second, I’m probably better off adding ballast if I need it rather than bolting it down. Third, I probably don’t need to get too antsy about buying the outrigger.

I’m looking forward to getting started with this. After 40+ years of making cabinets, remodeling, and doing a few furniture pieces on the side, this is my first venture into turning since my 1968 junior high woodshop class when I made a horrendous-looking lamp (that I think my mother still has).
