Field Shooting Table suggestions

What kind of field table do you guys use. I've got a round one with a rotating top that works, but I'm having a heck of a time getting the wiggle outta the base where the legs attach to the base 3/4" plywood. I'm using 4 legs 1.25" threaded pipe hooked to floor flanges bolted at an angle to the under side. I can't seem to get rid of the wiggle, when looking thru the scope just leaning on the table makes the x-hair move off the target.
P.S. I don't have $500.00 for a BR Pivot either...LOL. Thanks, Sam in Va

    I just use a four leg, non moveing table. The legs are adjustable, and the ends are spiked. So far I've got an 1100 yard rock chuck kill off this platform.

    Sam,
    I would think that your motion is due to your rotating table top. Go for a fixed one and put some spikes in the ends of your legs. If needed re-enforce the bottom of the table w/ 2X4's. You may not be able to pivot any more but hey move your chair [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Cheers [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    You might need a "X" bracket on two (2) side to stop the legs from racking if that's what's happening.
