I need some non-caster feet recommendations

edited April 2012 in EGG Table Forum
My new BGE table looks great, but it is currently sitting flush on the ground.  My deck pad is slightly sloped, so I don't want to put casters on it, but I do want to get the wood up & off the ground so my table will last a while.

Are there any recommendations for feet that will get the table at least a few inches off the ground and still bear the weight of the egg & the table?  The table doesn't weigh too much as it is made of cedar.  I was even thinking of something that could be adjustable so I could level the table on the sloped deck.

Thanks for the help!

    FWIW, they make casters w/ brakes & locks on them, such that when you set the brake, the wheels don't move, and because the brake is usually a part of the lock, the lock keeps the wheel from spinning 360. 

    My opinion is that the ease of moving the table around that the casters provide far outweigh the negatives, especially if you get the locking/braking ones. 

    edit:  Here's a perfect Egg-sample (and it's on sale too)!!:

    These are the best casters I have ever used, we paid a small fortune upgrading all of our normal casters at work over to these but it was well worth it, they are on very light work tables to 1 ton plus machines. Have a look

    She used this for raising tables at Fests but you could use as well:

    JEC23 - wow, thanks for the link!!  Those are indeed some heavy-duty, unique, and (I'm sure) expensive casters.  Have bookmarked the link & will have to check them out!!

    @hillbilly-hightech cost is around £20 ($30) per caster here in the UK but I'm sure you folks would pay less than that, worth every penny in my books

    If you decide not to go with casters, go to the decking hardware section at Lowes or Home Depot. They have plastic feet that are made for keeping porch posts from direct contact with the ground. They are around $2 each.
