I would not drill the stand. Drilling the stand would probably seriously
damage the structural integrity.
I built a base around an existing metal stand by building a free standing
wooden structure around the existing stand made out of 2x4's. I attached
the outer (visible wood) to this structure. It is easy to do if you are
handy with wood working tools.
