DIY stand for a new bench saw?

My wife bought this saw for me for Christmas (Isn't she great!):

I want to either buy a stand from Canadian Tire: http://www.canadiantire.ca/assortments/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id 5524441897783&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath%34374303517562&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath%34374303517566&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath08474396669771&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id08474396669771&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id08474396670271&bmUID04989022047, or make one from a bunch of old 2 X 4's I already have. My question:
Anyone have a website or online source of a plan I can make my own stand for this bench saw?
Suggestions / advice / comments / tips / ideas?

A few 2x4 'shorts' and some plywood or particle board for the top. $10-15 tops
Or just bolt it down to your workbench. If no workbench it's time to build one.

Here's a more elaborate plan:

How about some inspiration-- I don't know where the plans are these days, but this was the first picture I found of "The Ultimate Tool Stand". http://tinyurl.com/48avs

Your links did not work for me so I did not see the one you might buy.
I don't have any links or plans but when I built mine for my first saw I built it so that the top of the saw set level with the top of the table I built. This provided extra support on the sides of the blade and to the outfeed side of the blade for panel cutting. The saw bottom actually sat on a shelf. I had a second box that allowed my router to sit in the same space and use the same table.
To build you would just measure your saw and draw plans from there.
