I get a much better range of motion versus using the calf extension machine. I also don't have to wait on the people that love using the calf extension machine to sit on while they play with their phone.
I do something similar, but we have this little metal stand that is about 8"-10" high, and about 4" wide on top. It's base is pretty broad, so you don't have to worry about tipping it over.
