Hey y'all
I carry my act around in a med/lg doctor's bag and usually only need one chair at my shows.
But I've added some things that I could benefit using a table i.e. chop cup.
Does anyone know of a table that suits my needs of moderately durable and easily transportable?

Thanks!

A folding table, based on the Harbin design, is probably just what you need: http://cgi.ebay.com/HARBIN-FOLDING-TABLE......17779658

It also looks magical as it comes out of your bag if you let it open up simultaneously.

Michael, why don't you post your needs in the For Sale or Trade Forum as WTB (want to buy) or LF (looking for) ?

I've found that forum to be very helpful in locating things I'm looking for and at good prices too! Good Luck! Bob

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

For a while I used to use a jack stand (waiters use them to hold large trays) table with a top and stashed my bag below on the lower rungs. Later I made an upholstery bag that hung under with a two part lid (to give access to the bag while using the front lid as a surface) and an insert to make the bottom flat. If you make a nice cover for the top it can look pretty good. I used velcro to attach the top to the stand. Tom got the Jack stand in trade for some restaurant work but you could get one from a restaurant supply. This can be a cheap and portable interim table.

I combined my case and it becomes my stand. I made my own but it looks like this one here, but my case is a bit larger and deeper.

I carry my whole show in the case and a small box. One trip in one trip out.
No one said it would be easy, or did they?

Check out my all new book "Chicken Scratches" visit my lulu store for more information.

Check out the "Where To Put It All" forum -- lots of discussion about tables there. I use a music stand with the top angled flat. Percussion tables are also a great choice.

If you simply need a small but steady working surface, a tall bar stool may work for you. You can even find ones that fold. I use one in some of my performances. They're inexpensive.
