    I finished at about 28 1/2" from the floor to the top of the sewing surface. That allows me enough room to avoid bumping my knees on the bottom of the machine. Having the machine recessed into the table makes all the difference when FMQing!
    BTW, I used solid core doors for the tabletop and supported them on the walls and across with 2x4s so that they are nice and solid and don't vibrate when I sew. I also added a 2x2 leg under the back corner of the machine "box".

    This is my own design made to fit me, my machine and my space. (If you'd like to see details of how I did this, pm me and I'd be happy send you more pics and info.)

    Thanks Wendy, I like the solid core door concept. I think I will check out the supply of doors at Home Depot. I am handy with tools, just challenged with imagination.

    I've still got a bit of work to do to finish up, but I think I'll take a break from "construction" and do a little quilting now! :-) :-) :-)

    Can you see me smiling?

    Love your new additions! My studio is in the basement, so I have as many pot lights as could be put in due to heating ducts, etc. I also have white countertops and a very light beige walls in satin semi-gloss, which reflects the light instead of absorbing it. Isn't it fun to sew when your room is the way you want it?

    Just love your quilting table, big enough to support the whole quilt. That's perfect.
