Anyone found something at Home Depot or some other place that is similar to the Eureka. It seems like a common item, and if anyone knows were to get one outside the magic world, please post.

You know you are a magician when you have boxes full of lecture notes you have never read, but still are excited about going out and buying more.

IMHO, it seems a shame to continue using tables in a style that's over a hundred years old. We just don't see this type of furniture anywhere right now, except for three-legged candle stands in museums and antique-reproduction catalogs. Sure, drum and cymbal stands are common, but the chrome-and black "musician" or "DJ" look doesn't fit everybody's persona and visual style. I've seen way too many of these tables that look totally out of place in the act.

Don't get me wrong... I grew up with this stuff too, and this type of table still says "magic act" to me. However, the general public isn't familiar with magic catalogs or with Hoffman, so they see something totally different than we do. A table needs to fit visually into the act.

If I were doing an act today that requires a small stand-type table, I'd look at furniture catalogs with more contemporary products. IKEA is one, and there are many others. Or, if I were doing a themed act, I'd look at catalogs that sell stuff that fit my theme.
That's our departed buddy Burt, aka The Great Burtini, doing his famous Cups and Mice routine

Three leg are used to be able to set level on an uneven floor. That way you need not use your okito coin box to level the 4th leg.
