    My new cutting table

    I made a base using 2 x 4's and locking casters. Then I put my old jetmax cubes on them leaving the center open for mats, rulers and baskets of cutting stuff (templates, etc). I used the top from my old cutting table (this one: http://www.sewnblog.com/wp-content/u...10_4511064.jpg ). If it proves to be too bendy I'll get a 3/4" piece of plywood to replace it. I can't wait to cut something on it! (please ignore the horrible mess around it. I'm still organizing). I still need to add painted trim to the bottom edges to cover the sides of the 2 x 4's.

    btw it is 34.5 inches to the top surface. If it ends up being too tall for me, I can remove the top cubes and put something else there (probably 2 x 4 braces far enough apart to allow baskets in between).

    Beautiful! Even your mess has the seeds of a great quilting room. Enjoy!

    Oh, that is awesome! I had some of those years ago when I was into paper crafts - stamping, card making and the like. Never gave using them that way a thought. It'd be great for most any kind of craft - lots of storage as well as a nice work surface.

    Great idea, thank you for sharing.
