due to their height, 14” band saws wouldn’t, IMHO, be a suitable candidate for a flip top type of stand. too much weight of centerline as the tool is rotated from storage to operating position.

have you considered making the base out of 3/4” plywood and equipping it for storage? even if all it holds are band saw supplies, that’s space that doesn’t have to used elsewhere in the shop. something like this, only smaller and mounted on double locking casters:

even a five sided box made of 3/4” plywood would provide storage and stability for a 14” band saw.
