    The drafting table is a brilliant idea!. Because of the way they tilt you could use it to display a piece of art when company comes. It would be much prettier than most kinds of tables.

    I had an old 9 drawer dresser, and my DH got a hollow core door for about $25 and glued it on top of the dresser. It makes a GREAT cutting table, and just about the right height!! Very cheap way to do it. Plus you gain all the storage in the drawers.

    I love all the creative ideas. I have a folding cutting table that is on wheels. I can open it up to use it, and then fold the "wings" down and push it against the wall, or behind the sofa for a sofa table! I like not havng to bend over. Saves so much stress on my back! Also good for bastng. The counter height is WONDERFUL!

    my cutting table bought at Jo-Ann's is about 15" X 36" when it is closed. The sides fold down. When it is completely open it probably about 36 X 72. I use it for cutting and basteing. My sewing room is also the guest bedroom. It has a hi-riser bed and a bureau in it.
    It seems to work for me. I have to move this around so I can cut, but it works.
