I have used these bed risers for several years now and when we go to quilting bees, we have used them too. I have had absolutely not problem with them. Love them.

My sister who is only 5'0 uses the risers on her table and find that they work great, she does have a heavy wood table not sure if that will make a difference. We also use them on the beds to have storage areas under the beds and work very well.

I think they would work fine.

I have seen people also use cans of food and then they can get the exact height that they want.

My only gripe is that I get the plastic kind and they slope outward a LOT, so instead of a 1-1/2 inch round foot now I have this honkin' 5 inch round foot at the end of each table leg. Gets in the way of cramming more storage under there, and keeps my cutting table from butting against the wall which is annoying. I need to find a better type and not these cheap plastic ones but I don't know where to find such a thing!

Terri - it sounds like you may have what I want! Can you tell me where you got yours, and how big the "footprint" of the ones you have are?

I saw on a blog somewhere that some people screw wooden finials onto their table legs as risers. I like this idea but couldn't find anything that would work at the local home supply store.
Try a little smaller box on the bottom then you can put regular size on top. Could be wood box with glides on bottom, add a pull handle.

I use an old Formica kitchen table with the table leaf inserted. It’s heavy so no wobble on the plastic bed risers. It takes up a good part of my sewing room but I compensate the other things & get along fine.

Once I set a plastic table up on cans from my pantry to use as a cutting table. I eventually managed to push the table off the cans which startled me and seems like a good way to get hurt with a rotary cutter! For the sake of safety, whatever you use needs to have a raised edge so the table can’t just slide off the top.
