If you are making your own, the easiest thing to do is make a square-square instead of a square circle. The effect would be identicle, but you could make everything to fit perfectly.

Mine is made out of 1/2 wood and PVC piping, its not that hard to find the sizes you want.

I also made mine from 1/2 inch plywood and PVC piping. When I made it I made plans, if you are interested drop me a line!

Hey technofire,
That's pretty similar to the one I made, only mine has a triangle type shape in the front!

What table is that? Is it the folding table from Mark Wilson's complete course in magic!

Michael,
Very good idea with the pvc piping. It comes in all sizes and the easiest way to make something round(already round). Just make it a different color.

I also made that table. I haven't got around to painting it or putting in the shelf's yet. Do you use hooks to keep the shelf's in? Can you post a few pictures of the table?

Thanks,
Mike

it's a pretty cool table, however, i would like something that's a little easier to carry around. Not neccesarily smaller or lighter, this is just a little difficult to carry, being that it's so long, and with no handle

just put a handle on it. that will help a little. the length still might be a problem, but Mark wilson was just giving you an idea he did not mean copy it exactly peice for peice. Just add the handle.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Yes it would be easy to put a handle on the side of it. When I close mine I can fit the shelf's and table top inside the folded part. A hook keeps it from opening. All I have to do is paint it and put a handle on.
