    Now that my sewing/guest room is set up and ready to be used, I discovered that I have a little problem. I don't have a cutting table!

    I've been sewing and cutting in the dinning room on my dinning table on the first floor. My sewing/quest room is now on the second floor.

    What cutting table do you have that you would recommend? Please be aware that I have limited space and the sleeping/sofa couch doesn't help either.

    thanks for any recommendation!

    Could you store a large piece of plywood under the bed and put it on the bed as a cutting surface when needed?

    I have one of those folding tables too. the white speckled plastic ones. I got it at Sam's, it has adjustable legs, so you can make it standard countertop height so your back doesn't hurt from standing at the cutting board all day. I also got a piece of thick plywood that I covered in batting and muslin and just laid that on top of the table, so I can use it to iron, or put the cutting mat on it and cut with it. Works great in my limited space.

    I got mine at JoAnns. It folds up to the size of an ironing board. And that is what I use for my ironing also.

    I bought a "Sew Perfect" table. It is exactly what I wanted. The company is very nice to deal with. If you want to read about them, here is the link.

    You can raise the height of a folding table with PVC pipe cut to about 6 or 8 inches depending on how tall you are. This works for the style of table that has legs on each end, not a card table. Pipe about 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter works really well.
