    I hsave had mine for years, and I love it, most of the time I only use half of it because of room limitations but other than moving it with things on it , it is great, I is probably just a bad one and I am sure they will make it good, they want your business.

    I've got 2 of them side by side so I have a big work area. I've never had any problems. They are on carpet. I've had them several years so maybe the older ones are more stable.

    I bought one years ago and it's great! They may have changed over the years to a cheaper style.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    I've had mine for years, also, and it has gotten wobbly over the years. My husband has tried to tighten everything he can, but no real improvement. I still love it though--it's so convenient to be able to fold it up or open it out and on wheels I can move it easily wherever needed. It's also really handy when ironing large pieces of fabric to add the ironing pad they sell that fits it. I, too, use it for my Christmas wrapping station. It's just the right height for all kinds of projects.

    I have one & love it, so much so that I would like a second one. It sets on carpet, the legs swing out. I also did buy 4 legs (the spindels that are used on stair railing) to put on the corners so that there isn't too much weight on it. Not only that I moved it acrose the country.

    I have had the same or similar table for 12 years and I love it, the only problem I have is one of my castors falls out guess I prefer pushing it in to making it per infant.... I leave mine set up all the time and love it...

    I've had one for several years. I used it as a cutting table until I had my brother custom build a cutting table that was higher and bigger. The JoAnn's table was too low, so I had it sitting on bed risers. Don't know if that created some stability, but I didn't have any problems with it being wobbly. I still use it as a planning table for quilt projects, and it is an awesome Christmas wrapping station! I can just move it out into the rec room and wrap away...

    Mine has just recently began to be wobbly. I've had it for a couple of years. I am going to turn it over and tighten the legs to see if that will help.

    Marcia:

    I've had mine for about the same amount of time and the wheels on my screw in rather than just push in. DH had to turn mine upside down as it had become wobbly and it was because the castors were just about all unscrewed in it and after he tightly screwed all of the castors back into the legs its fine to go another 12 years except now we know we have to check the castors on it every now and them, especially if I have been moving it around the house.
