I second Doug's idea. Assorted pieces of plywood with a 1x2 screwed to
them make good bases. I clamp it in my Black and Decker Workmate.
Another option is to attach your pedestal to a sheet of thicker plywood
and stand on the plywood while you grind. Use some threaded inserts to
make the base easily removable for storage.
