A Very Stable Table!

Pros:Sturdy, handy, easy to maintain, look good.

Cons:Hot objects may melt table top!  Screws that hold legs can loosen.

The Bottom Line: Shop around for the best deals!


Last week, my son's Cub Scout trip held their annual picnic at a local park.  I volunteered to bring a few folding tables to be used for serving food.  So I packed up three of my Lifetime 6' Folding Tables into my truck and delivered them to the picnic site.

The tables have a very simple design:  A 3" thick hollow ABS plastic top, with steel folding legs.  When the table is standing erect, it is very stable.  It can hold a lot of weight.  Much to my chargin, at the picnic, one of the ladies stood on top of one of my tables to hang a banner up onto the pavillion rafters.   Despite this, the table did not sag or dent.

To close the table, simly turn it over on one side, move a small metal ring to one side, press in the hinged table support arm until it bends, then pull the legs flat agains the bottom side of the table until they click shut in the molded underside.  Do the same on the other side.  It is fairly easy to take down.  It is also very lightweigt, weighing less than 30 pounds.

The table does have some flaws.  Several times I had to tighten the screws that hold the legs to the table.  They loosen over time, especially if you drag the table around when the legs are erect.  Also, once I brought one of the tables on a camping trip.  I used it to hold up a  small propane cooking stove.  This turned out to be a big mistake!  The heat generated by the stove caused the top to melt and form a bowl shape!  I was able to fix it, slightly, by reheating the dippled in area and pulling it up with a suction cup.   But it now has a ripple in it.

The table may be used for hundreds of uses!  I typically have them setup in my dining room as a buffet table.  When we have parties, we put out chaffing dishes on the tables for buffet style dining.  We cover them with elegant table clothes and they look great!  We also use them for barbacues, card tables, picnics, garage sales, lemonade stand for my children, popcorn sales for the Cub Scouts - and many other uses!  The tables are very portable, but they do require a pickup truck to tote around (they will not fit in a standard car - not even my Lincoln Towncar!)

The table is also pretty much easy to maintain.  Simply wipe it clean with a wet sponge or cloth if it gets dirty and you're all set!  If it gets really dirty (think children using finger paints...), simply hose it down with a powerful blast of water, brush off the mess with soapy water, hose again, and wipe dry.  I have hosed my tables down several times and the legs still look like new (no rust).

I would recommend these tables.  However, they are VERY expensive and usually do not go on sale.  I purchased my three tables from an electronics store that went out of business when the store was selling their fixtures.  I got them for only $10 each, but normally they sell for over $80 in the store.  I saw Lifetime tables for sale at Walmart before and a few other similar stores.   With proper care, the tables should last, well....,  a Lifetime!  :0)  Thanks for reading my review and best wishes for a nice day!

Mike
