    Our quilt group meets in a conference room at local school. Yesterday our project involved lots of cutting and tables were 'backbreakers'. One quilter had the clever idea of raising the tables by putting a large coffee can under each leg. Instant relief!!

    Or buy a set of the plastic risers for beds. One of our LQS' has them under the work table that we use at classes, and it makes life oh so good!

    I use the PVC pipe method. Cheap, easy to clean, easy to move, virtually unbreakable.
