I've found that if there isn't a table available I CAN work entirely out of my FatMax. I have a 4 foot table from Staples that I bring to fairs and such but I don't usually bring anything but my FatMax to parties.

Ohhhhh aren't you a clever one! Very Happy Little hard to find a beach towel when it's -20 degrees celcius... but I'll definitely keep that in mind this spring. A little elastic around the corners would keep it from flapping too Idea .

Metina.. what an ingenious, helpful lot you have on this forum! Very Happy

Judy - try the Op shop like I did. That is, "Opportunity Shop", like your Goodwill. They usually have lots of towels in our favourite Op Shop, and I got a very large dark green bath towel for $1.50 last week. Since my directors chair is also dark green, that will be nice for my table to have the green towel to match, and yes, I plan to wipe the excess paint on it, like Debi said.

I'm scratching my head - last time I was in Canadian Tire (that was last summer, though), they had all kinds of stuff - camping chairs, tables, etc. It seems weird that you have to import stuff from the States. Is it because it's the wrong season? Bummer if so.

I'm putting together a neat table setup that's fun to do, as I'm "adapting" things that originally had other purposes. I'll describe it and put it in another thread when I get it done.

Kat I love you

Funfaces, how long are the PVC extensions? I'm an inch taller than you and would love a higher table. Excellent idea.

Thanks, Magna

Is it wobbliy? I'm a super-clutz and bump into things all the time! Althought, I imagine you could make a brace for the bottom out of pipe fittings. I do love PVC.

I bought one a couple of days ago (Army and Navy, on sale for $59.99). It's 140"X70"X70" - I don't know why they don't put these things in inches, haha. According to my phone, 70 cm = 27.55 inches. If I was taller, this would be a problem, haha.

Yes, it's light, but in the bag it's also about 5' in length - the support only folds up so much. It also took me about 10 mins to set up - first time, though. I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it yet...weight and space-wise it wins vs my fold-up card table. It loses with set-up time, and transport might still be iffy - it doesn't fit in the back seat of my car! Only through the trunk onto the seat...

(There is a smaller one, as well - this is a double, as I wouldn't be able to fit my paints and balloon stuff both on the small one - which would obviously be easier to manage...but it's smaller than a card table, and that's barely big enough.)

28 more days left to make a decision...

I picked up a 4'x2' table from Fred Meyer, legs fold up and fits crosswise in my car. Then at Walmart I found folding aluminum camping tables that stand up just under my table giving me a "bottom shelf". Two of them will fit side-by-side under the 4'x2' table,and are wide enough to hold 2 "laptop" style trays each. Granted its all too short for me at 6', but with a small child in big directors chair and hunched over to paint anyway, the tabletop is within easy reach Laughing

That would mean having a Costco membership, though...and that, I don't have. Although my neighbour does...might have to tag along with her!

Oh! That's about the same size as the one I bought - but 'mine' has more of a work horse (?) base as opposed to the full-out collapsible one you've linked to - which still means that it's nearly as tall as me rolled up.

Chances are good that I'm going to return mine and either get a roll up one with collapsible legs, or a fold-up table - I have a dolly and I'm out of shoulders, so as long as it's aluminum, it would be easier than either the table I just bought, or the heavy card table I have!
