Idiot-proof Tables

Make your table idiot-proof. In my early days, I had my table knocked over by the Master of Ceremonies and the stagehands as they walked to the stage. That is an awful feeling, just before you go on, to see your table hit the floor and have your props scatter across the stage! Make sure your table can withstand a severe hit from all sides and still remain upright with all the loads and glasses of liquid in place. Your table can get knocked backstage in a blackout, when the act before you exits the stage, or when the emcee dashes into the wings to pick up the spare mic or a prop he forgot. In short, if you make your table heavy at the bottom, it won’t tip over. (Excerpted from Pack Small, Play Big)
