Many folks place them on a nicely sized folding table. I built a support for mine. The basic design was:

[x][x][x][x]
[x][x][x]

This is a side view ... I built a 2x4 with a bottom and a then placed it on a 2x3, with open fronts so that I could use the bottom areas for food storage and such. I also added a 3 square platform (in like an L shape) as an upper level. All of this required 2 boxes of cubes. Also, when relying on the cubes for support like this the connections really need to be reinforced with cable ties.
