If you live near an IKEA, they sell a three pack of cork heat trivets for pretty cheap. I got one pack for each 20 gallon pot. Haven't used them yet but I think they'll do the trick.

On my original setup I used a wood table with cork mats under the boil kettle and it worked great. Nothing used under the MLT or HLT:



On my new setup I switched to a stainless table and don't use anything at all. More than a couple of inches away from the boil kettle the table is barely warm:



I did try a couple of large thin silicone pizza mats under the boil kettle but it did very little to keep heat out of the stainless table.
