I built my table custom...

Stand is a heavy duty photography tripod that attaches with the standard quick release. Stability is achieved through cross tensioning with mini bungee cords. Black velvet top, black art well built in. Servante on back and also two side servantes for lighting/object placement. Packs light, looks great.

Now that I've worked the bugs out of the design, I'll reproduce it using finer quality materials. If I can ever find my camera, I'll post pics.

I just looked at the ultimate gig case II by Doug Reis at the Advance Conference in Pittsburgh PA. This is now on my wish list! Similair to a Lefler table only better, it also comes with a side table. This IS the table to have for the serious performer. It is not cheap, but it's an investment that will last for a very long time!

Wow that's a gorgeous set up that you have Ekuth! I'm going to have to go down to Mesa and jack it whilst you are busy at first fridays guy Lol!
Thanks for sharing it Brother! You could probably market your creation buddy! I'd take one off your hands. Sign me up!

LOL. Thanks, man. I'm an old DIY guy so if I can do it cheap, that's the way I go. This is just the prototype, I was testing various ideas out to see what worked and what didn't.

I could probably produce one very similar or not too far off for around (not counting the camera tripod/mount) for around $50 - $60 depending on what options folks wanted, the surface covering, ect. I used black felt underlay with black triple velvet on top.

Lemme finish working on my blackdrops before I get ready to tackle a second run!

I started out with the Eureka tables, but I ended up building my own. I use a Vaultz case (with added foam in the bottom) on top of one table as my drop/ditch box.

I just finished an easy table.

I started with a $15 folding table from Wal-Mart.

For the top, I cut out foam board to shape of table top, then glued 1/4-inch foam (made from recycled plastic bottles), to foam board. Wrapped it with felt made from 100 pct post-consumer products. I used spray glue for it all, so no sewing. I then used velcro to attach the top to the table, then velcro for the trim. I wanted a "classic" magic table look, so I went with the gold fringe.

I used velcro on the trim, too, so I can change the trim for a different look any time. Plus, I can take off the trim, take the top off and I have a close-up pad. The whole things is lightweight, folds flat and costs about $30.

You can finish the project in 45 minutes.

Nice! I looked at those tables, but they were too low for me.

It's barely high enough for me, and I'm 6-3.

That carpeted table looks great! Most tables look like hardware store junk with fringe on top.

I don't like tables made from drum stands. They are ugly, Would you furnish your house with end tables made from drum stands?

Some of the MAK Magic tables are good if you repaint and redecorate them. Also replace the casters with some that won't break apart under real world conditions.

I use Joe Lefler's Pro Table. Actually I have 3. By far the best for me and easy to personalize with velcro to attach signs etc. durable and scuff free.

I use the exact same table! Instead of gold fringe, mine is draped with a black cloth that is secured with velcro.

Thanks, Bill. It did turn out well. @Blayk, I saw that table and I thought, mobility and magic. I used the foam board under it to give it a little more cushion for cups and balls, cards and coins. It's working great so far.

I have used the Joe Lefler's Pro Table for years and was content with it. I then bought the Ultimate Gig Case II and I liked it to a point.
It was big and had to lay it on its side to get in the car, and you could not use the inside of the case for storage unless you did not put the stand in it for the side table.
I am so glad that I had Thomas Clark from Magic Sax make my case for me .It is the lightest one I ever had and it has everything I need built in .
It is better to get one built the way you want it and in the long run you will always be happy.
