A good portable table is a hard tool to beat. It’s useful for so many purposes, people who get one for the first time often wonder why they waited so long. Obviously, however, you won’t want to use the same table for running a portable table saw as you do for your monthly Bunco night. A portable table needs to be quite sturdy, while a little flimsiness won’t hurt the other at all. The fact is, portable tables are available in a variety of materials and sizes, ranging from excellent quality to poor. A few things to consider when making a purchase include its construction, what you expect to use the table for, and how you expect to transport or store the table when not in use.
