The Industry Standard. New Lightweight Model with new flip open top feature
The world's most popular table for professional magicians, clowns, and variety entertainers used by nearly 10,000 performers around the world.
This high quality, precision-crafted item is an investment that will carry and protect your props for years to come while making you look your best when stepping in front of an audience--whether in a living room, backyard, or Broadway stage. Versatile design perfected from over 25 years of real-world feedback from thousands of satisfied customers.
Based on Joe Lefler's original innovative design, and produced exclusively by Showtime Magic Products under arrangement with the Joe Lefler estate, this new version is better than ever. This innovative flip top version is the idea of performer Dorian Lachance, and wow do we love this idea!
How have we reduced the weight? This new model retains the solid Baltic Birch plywood frame as its durable skeleton, but replaces non-structural panels with thermoplastic inserts. It looks identical to the tables we've built for decades, but when you pick it up, you'll discover a substantial weight reduction vs. our traditional models--from 6-13 lbs. depending on which size table you choose. It's just as long-lasting, just as beautiful, and just as strong, but weighs a lot less. Since introducing the Lightweight Tables in 2016, we have made hundreds of them, and performers have indicated that they hold up just as well as the all-wood tables but the weight difference is a huge advantage. Lightweight models now make up about 90% of our sales volume for the Pro Suitcase Table product line.
•Identical in features and dimensions to the standard Lightweight Pro Suitcase Table, this table features a versatile flip open lid on the top. The table can be used with this lid closed, creating a performing surface, or can be used flipped open, also creating a performing surface but allowing top access to the inside of the table.
•Sturdy furniture grade ½ inch Baltic Birch plywood frame that is both glued and fastened for exceptional durability and long life, combined with lightweight, highly durable thermoplastic inserts on non-structural panels for reduced weight
•Durable Velcro-friendly synthetic exterior upholstery in your choice of two colors --Solid Black or Charcoal Gray--that handles years of wear and tear with ease
•High quality battery operated LED light mounted under the tabletop is dimmable and aimable—a lifesaver for set up and tear down backstage or in poorly lighted venues
•Bright white gloss painted interior offers ease of visibility when searching for props inside and wipes out easily with a damp cloth
•Three shelves--one fixed and two adjustable--including one that may be positioned to create a handy enclosed "secret" compartment at the bottom of the table for infrequently used items--or removed altogether should you wish
•Two locking latches with keys protect props from prying eyes
•Four 2 inch (5 cm) casters with quiet non-marring rubber wheels
•"Extra Tall" option adds 3 inches of additional height to the table's lower compartment for bulky props (available only with 2 inch casters)
•Two rubberized, spring loaded side handles
•Rear flipper door for storing large props and easy access to the table's generous storage capacity
•Heavy duty piano hinges secure both the lid and rear flipper door for years of service
•Industrial grade fasteners with T-nut backing for durability on casters and handle
•Handcrafted with pride in the USA
•Use a rabbit in your show? Our Incognito Rabbit Carrier is sized to fit perfectly in either top or bottom compartments of the Large table when table is open
•Optional upgrades/accessories include exterior corner protectors, 4 inch casters, canvas slipover Travel Cover, the handy Piggyback Table, and 2-in-1 Shelf/Tabletop that transforms into a side table when paired with our Ultimate Table Base
•Customization is available to suit your exact needs—just let us know how we can build the perfect table for you!
Dimensions are the same as our standard Pro Suitcase Tables (see descriptions elsewhere on this site for the ORIGINAL Joe Lefler Pro Suitcase Table). Lightweight Models have a weight reduction of between 6-13 lbs. versus our standard all-wood table models depending on the size of the table.
Note: if you are concerned about maximum weight reduction, we do not recommend the large 4 inch casters. Larger casters, by their nature, are much heavier than the standard 2 inch casters.
All dimensions quoted are exterior dimensions and interior dimensions are approximately 1 inch smaller than outside dimensions.
If you have a particular item that needs to fit inside the table, contact us and we'll be happy to assist you with detailed information on dimensions.
A frequently asked question is "What is the difference between the Mini, Small, Large and Extra Large Sizes?" The only difference is width. As the sizes go up, the width of the tables increase.
Specifications are subject to change and weights are approximate depending on the exact table configuration
