I then chopped the legs and brought the cross members (and feet) up as close as I could to the tops in the flat, folded position. Last I moved the pivot point of the legs.

Final dimensions are 18.5"w x 14.5"d x 12"h open, 18.5" x 16.25" x 2" folded.

It took a little time, but I got what I wanted. I don't much care for the cookie-cutter solution anyway.

I should mention I only included the Pelican case in the photos to show scale, not to indicate that I intend to use the table as a suitcase stand.

I like the table, and I'll probably get another and keep it original-size and in the Land Cruiser for 4-wheel desert runs.

If you want a more detailed description of my mods let me know.

Cheers!
