Here's the best source I've ever found for folding tables. They're beautifully made, not very expensive for what you get, have built-in carrying grips, employ solid good-looking hardware, and look handsome.

Here's the web site: http://spiderlegs.com/custom-tables/ Scroll down to see a grid with photos of various models, including several for magicians. Buzz Shabram (the owner) will work with you to customize any table for your own needs.

I bought the half-octagon table (fifth row, two center photos), because it will serve dual purposes. I can use it on stage (for props, predictions, etc.). Or, as I did the other night, use it to create a close-up station for mentalism (with a Subdivided Studios Pro Table and Box on top).

Buzz adjusted the height of the table (I'm tall), moved the carrying-grip holes to the back of the table (so only I see them), and was really helpful with everything. My table feels very stable, and it's easy to transport and carry when folded.

My table cost around $250 including shipping -- a great deal, in my opinion.

Obviously, I'm just a satisfied customer and have no link to Buzz or Spiderlegs Tables.

Cheers,
Jerry

Incredible find Jerry. Those tables are stunning. They even offer a Magician's Table.

I especially like the ones (like yours) where the top folds in half to form a completely enclosed case for the legs. Thanks for sharing.

Jerry and Wizard:

Is the "magician's table" the one Jerry chose and referred us to, or Wizard, were you referring to another table on that site? None of the 20 or more table had that name under it, at least that I saw while looking for it.

Thanks,

George

Hi George,
You are correct regarding the names, I just happened to click on a table that looked versatile and it happened to be titled "Magician's table with compartment." When you look at the grid of tables it is in the third row down, third from the left. It has two horizontal hand holes and a lid on top...dark wood.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Cool, if only I had the $$$. Not finding the magician's table but it doesn't matter since I couldn't buy it anyway.

Those are beautiful. I wonder how much the magicians table would cost

These tables are really clever. A customer of mine wanted a fancier version of their table so I ordered one of their basic birch plywood tables,
disassembled, re-created all of the parts in walnut, then made a new top with shop-cut book matched walnut veneer and inlay.
The Spiderleg company is great to deal with and they will do custom sizes.
Here's the link to the table
