    My husband made it for me, and I use it all the time

    He cut some particle board, attached a lazy susan apparatus he got from some woodworking catalog, and also attached 2 handles so I can lift it

    I have a spot atop some plastic storage units where I put the cutting mat, and I just lean the 'lazy susan' next to it when not using it

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean????

    Me neither.

    I thought about buying one but instead I bought a smallish mat and put a handtowel under it. It spins easily and doesn't scratch/rub my kitchen table which is where I like to do small work.

    I have both sizes and really like using them. In fact, I was using my large one when I left my sewing room to check the Board. To me, they were worth the money because I use them so frequently.

    I got one for Xmas several years ago. I love it and always use it when I'm paper piecing. It sits next to my machine and I can reach it.

    I haven't used it for squaring up my blocks but I think I'll try using it for that..... it's probably the best use for it.

    I love my rotating mat! I used it to death, had to buy a new one! When this one wears out I'm gonna make me one like RugosaB... In fact I'll save my store bought one for travel'n and make one for home!

    I purchased a large and very heavy one a few years ago at the NEC Birmingham UK. It has a solid plastic base with a cutting board insert never seen them for sale since but it is fantastic. Solid and can be used for larger pieces. I did purchase a small green one forgot name, which fell apart and was very difficult to rotate.
    I would love a small one which is made as solid as my large one. Unfortunately never seen the same board again.
    Finished is better than a UFO
