Folding Framing Table

I've been using what I consider the perfect size table for framing behind my booth. It's a 20"x48" folding table that I recently found at Target.
I've now covered this table with a similar color gray carpet to my pro panels.

Like everything else I use in my booth, I've had to modify it for additional strength and height. I've been using the same size table for years from Service Merchandise (they went out of business) and was surprised to recently find it at Target. I've had to lengthen the legs by 11 inches so the table is 39 inches in height, the perfect size for me to frame on comfortably at home. I did that by inserting pieces of half inch electrical conduit into the table legs and screwed sheet metal screws through the legs to hold them in place. Because I want the table to last for years, I've replaced the top with a piece of half inch plywood and will be carpeting it when I have the time. I guess all that I really needed was the sturdy frame with the folding legs. In the picture above, I've temporarily stapled my old rack cover over the plywood so as not to scratch the frames. My replacement of the top is not necessary because the table actually comes with a particle board taupe-colored vinyl top. And it retails for under $30. Additionally, the table as it comes from Target is a lot more sturdy than the one I used to get from Service Merchandise.
