We have a Coleman folding aluminum stove stand that we really like because of it's light weight and compact storage size. What we didn't like was the two flimsy bars Coleman gives you to support a camp stove on ... :ph1:

I thought the stand would be more versatile with a table top on it. I found a small aluminum roll up table on EBay ... Pitched the legs, and laid the tabletop across the bars, attaching it to the rear uprights with two plastic C shaped clamps, and two small L brackets on the bottom.

While I was working on the stand, Deb asked if there was a way to add a towel rack to the stand ... I did that too, making one from a section of fiberglass tent pole... P^

I've had a chance to see this one up close and personal in use.

George n Deb sure make use of every available 'option'/space on it when in use. :cool:

Nice job, George! P^

That is awesome. I use the same stove stand and can see the advantage of that.

Another thing I made and added to the stove stand was a paper towel holder ...

That is a pretty simple but effective mod. As you can see in my photo, I just stick the paper towel roll on the end of the top post and put a pot over the top to keep the roll from becoming a long flag in the wind.

Nice work George, I'm liking the backstop! Did you luck out and it fit that way, or did you have to modify it?

I actually had to remove a couple of the aluminum slats from the table top, as it was too long otherwise.

Here's one I made last year for an annual New Years party in the desert. Sets up and breaks down fast and easy. This particular event there is always a good chance of not getting a picnic table so I bring my own making sure I have something to set the stove on.

Using a Coleman folding stove stand I made a top that clicks onto the stand.

Here is the Coleman stand and table folded down. Both fit into there own bag left over from an old folding camp chair.

Hey Keith ...
NICE stove stand ... P^ ... Courious of how you assemble it though ... Can you show us how you do that, and how you attach it to the legs?

Thought I had more pictures. Lets see if I can explain how it goes together. First of all there are 7 pieces, and 6 knobs. You can see the parts numbered 1-4. You start by laying them flat in order. On each side you can see 2 knobs. If you look very close you can see an L-shaped clip. These 4 clips each have a 10/32 riv-nut in them for that knob. The knob passes through a C-channel after it has been placed on each side of the 1-4 tabletops. Tightening the knobs pulls it all together. On each side on the bottom side of the 4 pieces of tabletop there is a slot cut for the Coleman table legs to fit into, its a really nice fit just short of being pressed together. The reason for the 1-4 is so everything lines up everytime the table is assembled. The last piece to put in place is the back/windscreen,2 more knobs holding it the backside of #4. When disassembled 1-4 fit inside each other giving you a stickup of 2 pieces. The other 3 pieces along with the knobs fit in the space between the top panels 1-4. All fit into an old folding chair bag.

I hope I explained it alright. If not give me sometime and i'll take a few more pictures of it all played out.

Keith ... Did you brake your table top slats or were they pre-formed?

I made each one on the brake along with the c-channels. Only thing that I didn't make was the Coleman stand. And the stand I got on sale when Sports Chalet closed there doors.
