    I would check craigslist and kijiji for used ones either Horn or Koala.

    Features I like are it is big 4 feet by 5 feet, the back part drops down if needed. It is on casters for easy moving. It is heavy and doesn't wobble or vibrate. It has 3 levels with a push down hydrolic lift.

    Hope that helps.
    I too have a Horn sewing cabinet with the above features and dearly love it. My only caution is that if you buy a cabinet check first to see how your machine fits before buying a custom made acyrlic insert. I bought one for my machine that fit fine no problem; then I bought a new machine with a longer throat and when I would sew I would be at an uncomfortable position because of the needle being farther to the left. Had another custom insert made and now I can't lower my machine unless I take the insert out and move my machine so it will clear the opening. But hey I never close mine up anyway so it's not a problem. :D

    I just put my sewing room together last year. The room has a lot of uses so my space is somewhat limited. I chose to buy a desk from IKEA with a pull-out on the side. It is perfect for piecing and pressing. If I'm quilting, I put an ironing board at the front of the desk at the same height to increase the holding space for the quilt. So far it has worked pretty well for me although I'd love to have one of the tables that lets me lower the machine to the same level. Someday, maybe. :lol: Right now, I'm more concerned with figuring out what new machine to buy. This little Brother has served me well, but I'm ready to move on. This photo was taken right after the setup - there is a LOT MORE stuff in there now.

    I have this one: http://www.hornofamerica.com/product...s&productID=92

    I bought it 10 years ago, its been wonderful. I have 5 different machines that can all use the same cabinet; just by changing out
    the plexiglass insert that goes around the machine's free arm.
    You can see mine in my webshots album.

    I got one of those long white tables from Sams Warehouse, it works great! My husband made some lifters so it would be higher up and I love it.

    I found this Correll Bi-Level Computer table at a local thrift store for $39. They retail for as high as $450. :shock: They are extremely heavy and solid, so it's working just fine for my Bernina sewing machine. I love how the drop down allows my machine to be table height.

    You can order them to have the drop down on the left, center or right side if you pay new price, which I've seen as low as $240. Mine is 30 x 60. They do come in a variety of sizes, too. I'm quoting the price for my size.

    I agree with Kwendt. Love what she has done.

    Start with your space and what you can do with it. Dream as big as you can.

    Then add your budget.

    Then see if you know of someone who could build you exactly what you want if you prefer that route.

    I have a Horn cabinet. I love it with my Pfaff. I put down my machine when company comes.

    I have an IKEA table adjusted higher for my embroidery machine.

    I have a folding Lifetime 18" x 24" adjustabale table for my FW.

    Am still trying to find a better place to put my HQ when I get a bigger table ... or will I need a new home.

    Tracey's Tables. Very reasonable, quality made quilting/ sewing furniture. They are located in Wisconsin and will deliver anywhere and set things up for you. They have a website...just search for Tracey's Tables. The gentleman that makes the furniture has a wife, Tracey, who is a quilter. When he delivered my things he only charged $100 for bringing and setup. Many of my friends have purchased items from him.

    You can call Tracey I'm sure she will tell you prices of the tables or e-mail her.
