Default field table question

Can anyone tell me where I can find plans to build a table to hold airplanes when starting and working on them at the field?

They invented this stand you want. Do place wheels on the thing. I also used two peices of 3/4" steel pipe for the shelf on the right. It holds your flight box and still provides acess to the top of flight box.

One of our club members built a dozen of the Meroke stands for us to use. Most of our group really likes them. A few have have their own folding stands that they prefer, and some prefer setting up on the ground.

Our field has 12 stands, best improvement we ever made at our field. I saw the plans in the AMA magazine and decided to build one. When I brought it to the field many of the older members began to grumble. "It's safety hazard", "It'll be a pain in the neck when I have to mow" etc etc . Once they tried it "they" began to build more. I guess I taught an old dog a new trick.

I just built one today. This thing is awsome. My grandfather is 81 and i showed it to him. He is going to love using it because he has problems bending over to work on his planes.

Those are ok.
But I have to say that I really don't care for handing a spinning prop between the two vertical 2x4's that hold the wings back.

I prefer the tail-holding method where the front of the airplane is unencumbered.
