Quiet Bench Answered

I am an apartment dweller who loves to do small metal work. I have somewhat adapted to keep the noise down, but there is one huge problem: I can hardly tap on anything without my bench/table turning into an amplifying resonating chamber...Boom! I have the same problem with filing and sawing. I would love some thoughts on economical methods for deadening the vibrations. Thanks!

Rubber mats on the top of the table and rubber blocks under the feet. Won't help a whole lot but it's about the best you can do.

Do you suppose rubber under the top would kill the resonance? Thought about a stall-mat sandwich. I need the hard top, unfortunately. Fortunately my floor is vinyl on concrete, so that's no problem.
