Default New cutting table.

I am tickled pink and have to share. After35years of nursing my back is shot. So doing any cutting caused me a lot of pain. I don't have the counter space or floor space for a permanent cutting table. I had always used the kitchen table to do my cutting.
On the WalMart website I found a 4ftx24" folding table with adjustable legs, up to 36 inches. It came today and it's perfect for me. It is big enough for a mat with room to spare. So no more cutting woes.
Sorry, but I had to tell someone that would understand.

Glad you found something that works for you.

Another way to raise a table are the plastic bed risers.
Two under a banquet table brings it to about the same height as your purchased table.
Or one, for a little lower.

here is another way .....cut pvc to slip over the legs....use the heavy weight pvc......we did this for some display tables at a show .....could also use any tube that your leg would fit into ....
