    I am looking for reviews on the various sewing machine cabinets. Koala seems to be the most expense but are the more economical cabinets equal bang for the buck. I would appreciate your insight and recommendations.

    The one I have is no longer produced...But...look for one that has lots of room to the LEFT of your machine and to the BACK of the machine. Mine fits snuggly into the corner of my room. Perfect for when I'm quilting..can toss the quilt all over the work area.

    I have one drawer and one DOOR that stores two machins on a slide out shelf.

    Had it for 19 years and just love it. Drops down for storage but sew every day..no need to make it smaller.

    Good luck!

    I have Bertha by Arrow. The magnets to close the doors were in the wrong location. Hubby added a larger metal piece and they close so well. The hinge on the left extension is wobbly, but that too is an easy fix.
    The lift works well, the quilt table leaf on the back easily slides and raises up & down for use. I love everything about it. Is it made of cheap stuff? I think so, but no one uses it but me. I have a sheet of vinyl that fits over the left extension arm and over the sewing machine plate (I cut out a place for needle & bobbin change). This serves to protect cabinet, help fabric slide and cost about $3.00 vs. the small/tiny Supreme Slider that only helps the fabric slide a bit. I love my Bertha.
