    This is one subject I always keep an eye on. My main thing is, do you fit comfortably alongside that setup with all the drawers. If there is no overhang I can't imagine having my knees comfortable if right against the setup. Am I being silly?
    Everything in life happens for a reason.

    It is too short to be the correct cutting height. It is the standard table height. 29.75. " is its height.

    I bought the one from JoAnns a few years back but had to remove the side unit because the screw holes were not properly placed and the wood split when attempting to attach to the main unit. This item was poorly made. I did keep the main larger section, but even that one was a disappointment. The drawers are very shallow (plenty of room behind them) and not of much use. I didn't return it because I would have had to dismantle the entire unit and try to get the pieces back into the original box. Just using the top area, which is a nice size, but I was still left to find a space for my serger which I had planned to keep on the side unit.

Lots cheaper than those you have listed. Attachment 444382This was made by a lady's friend for her. Attachment 444383You can make it smaller if needed or larger if you want. Storage in the middle if you do the second one.

My special ironing board I use for quilts can be placed right on the top when needed. I plan on loving it. And I'm going to roll it over to my quilting area to support the quilts if I'm doing some free motion quilting. Sure helps with storage and organization too.
