My favorite places for magic are usually at toy stores and especially dollar Stores. I always keep my eys out for intersting things that I can use to make my magic more enjoyable. it is really amazing what you can find out there.

Where could I get a Rolon Table or get plans to make one? If it is made of would, I have family members that could do it in a flash.

Regards,

Evan

UPDATE: March 10, 2004

I know this is a very old topic, but I thought I would post what I ended up doing. I found a Chalet Suitcase Table (retail: $700) for about $100 on eBay. It needed a little bit of work (mostly just wiping off the dust and a little touch-up paint) but ended up being a GREAT purchase.

Thanks for the advice about tables everyone,

Evan

As per the mention by Roy and Kyle, I use a Joe Lefler's Pro-Suitcase Table / Large (there are 2 sizes available). In case anyone is interested in what that looks like, here's a link for future readers:

Donald or anyone:

Does anyone know if anyone makes a cover or cloth bag that could go over the lefler type table for use in transport? I made my own out of plastic and it will work fine for a while.

However, I am doing so many outdoor festivals and events this year, that I fear what would happen to my table if it gets wet. I want something to protect it better with in transport to protect it from the elements.

Kyle,

How about rip stop tent material and seal the seams? It will last you a life time. I don't know how much protection you need, so this may not work, but it's an idea.

Steven thanks. I have made a cover myself the best that I could and it seems to be working out ok for me so far. I just wondered if there was something out on the market for a cover for the table. If so, then I have not seen or heard of anything.

Kyle -
How about a vinyl cover for a gas grill? Maybe even a cover for outdoor deck/patio furniture?
Is that closer to the thing you are looking for?

peace,

Phil:
The grill cover is an awesome idea. That might actually work since I think some of them might be the same size as my table. I may have to customize it a bit but that might indeed be worth looking into the next time I am at the dept. store. Thanks for the great suggestion.

I made up my own cover, but I am not so sure how long it is going to hold up etc. for me. I would just hate to see any weather damage such a great table for me.

I had a cover custom sewn by my local seamstress. It is made from heavy duty nylon fabric, fitted to the shape of the table (top with hole for handle, and sides. No bottom.)

I use it only in my vehicle, mainly to protect the show sign that I have velcroed onto the table front. I was finding my various table signs to be getting scratched up, in transport.

Now, the cover goes on, and the table is wedged into my van between the back of the bench seat, and my microphone stand. Stops it from moving around. The cover also stops vandals and theives from seeing what I am carrying in my vehicle.

Kyle,

A new note relating to covers for the Lefler Pro suitcase table (large size).

When I was at a friend's yesterday, I saw that he had covers for his amps from Fender. One cover was perfect fit for our suitcase table. It was waterproof material, and had a slot in the top for the handle (because the Fender amp had a handle on top, too), with a flap to cover the slot, when the handle was not in use.

Check out Fender and other amp makers for covers for amps. You may find one close to the size needed for your suitcase table.

Donald:

WOAH!!! Thanks a million. That might be perfect for what I need. I did not even think about that route. I have a Fender Passport 150 system and should have realized that the covers for the amps may be the same size as what I am looking for.

I am going to check around online to see if I can locate one around the size that I need. That would be ideal to get a cover with the flap for the handle and have that before my festivals kick in.

If you need special covers for your cases, consider having an automobile upholstery company make them for you. Even a furniture upholsterer who works with naugahyde can do the same thing.

Thanks for the link Ty. I was wondering where you could find those.

I made my own table. It is about 2 1/2" high and has a drawer for storage and ditching items. I trimmed the edges of the top portion with moulding about 1/8" above the top edge then placed an Apollo pro mat in it. The whole thing fits on a Eureka base. I am going to add some small feet to it so it can be used as a portable desktop table too.

If you live in the UK B&Q do a very nice steel case which I use for only £16! It has dividers in it which you can move around!

The davenports roll on table is great! I have mentioned it in the 'suitcase table' topic near this one. I'm not sure if its on their sight but here it is anyway: http://www.davenportsmagic.co.uk/
