    I bought a table yesterday on sale only because of favorable comments here. My DH put it together & I'm so disappointed. It's flimsy, wobbley, he said because the holes didn't match for the hinge screws, I probably shouldn't put the sides down. Also even with the wheels lock it moves ! To top if off it was made in China!! Needless to say it's going back to the store tomorrow.

    I bought one at JoAnn's years ago that was wonderful. Last year I bought a new one - had shelves in the center - its awful. Wobbles and the wheels broke the first time I tried to move it. The first one is still going strong and doesn't wobble! Sorry to hear you got a bummer too. :(

    mine has always wobbled a bit. i don't use it for cutting, just basting really. i did cut some tablecloth fabric on it once so i could use my 36 inch long ruler with a lip.

    I purchased some 4ft heavy folding tables off of CL for 20.00. I put them together and use them for a cutting table.

    Oh, goodness! I have 2 Joann's tables; one is older, newer one has more stability and support. Honest, no wobblies????

    Can you put bed risers under the legs ? We did that with a folding table and it works great and is a much better size height for cutting.

    thats how I felt about mine. It was given to me by a customer so I cant take it back but I cant use it for cutting either. so put the sides down and put a table cloth on it and put knick knacks on it.
