Folding table legs

I'm looking to turn my front deck into a table and was wondering who makes sturdy folding legs and where can I get them? My table is a little narrower than most river tables I've seen for sale.

I used the legs from a folding table. I cut & welded the legs so they are self storing.The leg are fairly narrow but it's never tiped over.(!4" I think)

There are some good ones out there, and I had saved the link for a long time but deleted it awhile ago. If not, try simple pipe stands, attached with T-nuts and flat head machine bolts, with 1" inch or better threaded aluminum pipe for the legs. Worked for us for years.

I just strap an ironing board to the frame and call it good. Nice folding legs already built in.

My table is tall and narrow and seems like it would be unsteady but I strap it to a tree (where possible) or else I snug a strap from the carry handle down to the propane tank set beneath (or something else heavy). It makes it surprisingly stable.

As table legs, they work and they're sturdy - but they're a little too bulky & wide for folding up under a plywood seat over a frame bay. A little on the heavy side too. I found another use for them in the garage.

So I would keep looking, or invest that $ to save up for a DRE or Cascade poly table.
