    Could you please explain? I don't know what a table for Dutch oven cooking is.

    Thanks.
    I looked them up on line and as much as I like making things, not sure I'd bother when a new one is around $100-150. I would think you'd need some metal working equipment to cut sheet metal for the base and sides plus find lightweight, sturdy metal tubing for the legs, then drill and screw/bolt it all together. Too much of a project for me.

    I stooped for many years. But the table is worth the small space and weight impact.

    What advantage that as opposed to just putting them on a counter? I don't see how this table prevents any stooping down.

    This is about cooking with charcoal in cast iron usually in a less developed campsite. Or perhaps a wood fired cooking hearth.
    But stooping down to cook a few inches off the ground gets old fast.
