Plenty sturdy for me. That, of course is determined buy the materials you use
and by the size of your base.

Yes. At $10 per jack I did not see this as a problem. 

> also, did you cut lopsided triangles to fit against the post and floor? 

Yes. The triangles are 3/4 plywood.

3" long "screw nails" AND construction adhesive. 
You don't want the triangles coming loose.
