That would be pushing it IMHO. The insides of these are hollow - I found out after one broke after 5 years or so. If used just a few times, standing for a while or walking might work, but jumping on them, even once, would be going too far - and in any case, you would not want to risk any serious injuries. I would strongly advise against using them as a stage.
Has anyone used this to create a stage or a riser? Would it support a 100-200 pound person walking, running, and maybe jumping on top of it? As a solo musician, places I play at (bars, private parties, etc) often don't have a stage, which I feel helps make the performance feel more legit and "real". Being able to break down 10-12 lack tables and set them up would be a real space (and money!) saver for a portable stage setup!

Hmm. I might alter this to see if I could make a full or twin-sized bed for $120. I could probably only use 6 stools as I measure 5'4".

Just to confirm folks, this Ikea lack table platform bed is the best!After several years I can definitely state there are no drawbacks to it at all and knowing that you could easily move your platform bed, if you had to, is a great comfort.Thanks again for the wonderful idea, sbansban.
I just completed my own bed platform using these tables. Some models are still $7.99ea, and is working well with my air mattress. I did zip tie the pairs of legs around the perimeter, leaving the sets of four legs in the middle untouched. My bed is in a corner, so lateral forces are minimal. I can confirm the entire (disassembled) set of 12 tables easily fit into my VW Golf. Thanks to sbansban for the original idea!
