Portable Tables for Walkaround Card Magic

Tags: magic, card-magic

These are my two favorite providers of portable tables for close-up card magic.

My table criteria are minimalist.

  1. Lightweight
  2. Portable when collapsed
  3. Adjustable height
  4. Attractive/professional/modern
  5. Large enough surface for card tricks (e.g. 14" x 24")
  6. Reasonably easy to move around when opened
  7. Easy setup & takedown

Doug Ries at Flipdisc sells nice tables. Here is a list of most of them: http://flipdisc.com/mmp.htm

I particularly like the side table http://flipdisc.com/side_table.htm because it is compact and unobtrusive.

Doug at Flipdisc is a super friendly guy and provides terrific customer service.

Another provider of tables is Showtime Magic Products https://squareup.com/store/showtime-magic-products.

I ordered their Ultimate Table Base-Compact and Large 2-in-1 Shelf/Tabletop, because its black base is more appropriate for my style.

Showtime's customer service was also good.
