I have a wonderful old table with black V-shaped iron legs that's perfect for sewing/crafting. The problem was that it was too low -- it was perfect for sitting at but not standing next to in order to cut patterns, etc. So I bought a set of bed risers and slipped them under the legs. Because the risers have an edge to them, the legs don't slip off and they stay securely in place. It raised the table to the perfect height for working at without having to bend over. I found the risers at my local Walmart for under $10, so it wasn't an expensive endeavor.

we use pvc pipe to raise the table up to cutting heigt. It really works well and keeps table very stable. Home Depot cut pipe for my home table too.

This is what I need to do! I use a banquet table with a large piece of MDF on top of it to enlarge the table. I tried using coffee cans but couldn't get it stable enough.
