I came up with a cheap and sturdy fix.
    1. Cut a sturdy board for the top. I cut mine to fit so that I could it store with the seat backs on it.
    2. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $40-$50 for 2 folding legs. So, I found a kid sized card table which was just the right width.
    3. I firmly attached the table to the underside of the board making sure the screws did not go through.
    4. Because I’m always looking at maps I glued down a laminated US map on top, sanded the edges of the top and applied 3 coats of varnish.
    5. To extend the legs I bought a length of pvc that would slide over the existing legs when I set it up. I capped the ends with chair leg protectors. I made the finished table 29 inches high. My pvc extensions are 25 inches which is how far they slide up the legs.
