Default Comp prep tables

What do you guys use for prep tables. I have some lifetime tables but seem too low to work off of. Any recommendations?

I use two of the 4 foot adjustable height tables from Sams Club. A lot of folks use PVC pipe and make leg extensions
for the non adjustable height 6 ft versions.

That is what we use as well. PVC pipe if your friend to save your back.

Have two people hold the table up, and when it is just the right height, measure the height of the table-top, and cut PVC leg extensions to put the table at that height.

Everyone is different. This way, you have the perfect height for you.

We use the 6" Lifetime tables that have adjustable legs. VQ always puts the legs at full extension, which is comfortable for him but makes me feel like I'm a kid that's wandered into a grownup kitchen. I always threaten that someday I'm going to set up a "midget" camp with everything at the right height for ME, everything at the first notch!

Anyway, the tables have been in service for 4-5 years, up to 28 outings per year, and they're still hanging in there, so I imagine we've got our money's worth out of them.

Do you remember where you bought the adjustable tables and how much more expensive they were?

We'd gotten them at Costco, and had seen them at Sam's, but to tell the truth I don't know if either of them has stocked the adjustable-height tables recently. I don't really remember the price difference either, other than it seemed like a good deal compared to screwing around trying to make risers.

We always use the Lifetime adjustable height tables. I got my latest tables 2 years ago at Sam's -- 4' adjustable height double folding. Highly recommended.

We use two of each: 6' table and 4' adjustable. All Lifetimes. One 6' table is our wash station and has the PVC leg extensions, the other is our table for the Carlisle box and all BBQ tools, spices, sauces, and implements of destruction. The two 4' adjustable tables are set all the way up and put end to end. These two short tables make our work station.

I'm 6'6" and have the PVC setup. More comfortable than my own kitchen.
Down side is that if I forget the PVC, my weekend is ruined.
