One of the biggest things I’ve run into with Bootstrap are their tables which are dynamic and grow and shrink depending on content size. For the most part this is completely desired.

This is a very simple trick that I wanted to document for those who have run into the problem of wanting more control than Bootstrap gives initially.
This video walks through a few tricks to allow you to control the width of each column in your Bootstrap table. I also show how to add a nice ellipsis on content that is too large for a given column.
