    My hubby is remodeling a sewing room for me but I'm not sure how I want him to build my cutting table. I'm sure some of you have come up with great ideas for cutting tables. Would you please post pictures to help me decide? Thanks. :D

    I just have a plastic table that has the taller legs for cutting ease. It's 6"l. x2 1/2" w. The legs are adjustable. I got it at Costco for $39.00. Works really good for my back.

    I don't have a picture, but my cutting table is counter height with a Formica top, and cabinets underneath. It's like a kitchen island in that I can walk around it. One long edge is rounded, and the opposite is squared off. I marked 12" lines on that side to use for some measuring. I love it. The top is 62" long, has room for my cutting mat, with space left for fabric, rotary cutter, etc.

    :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Mine is an old desk. It is OK. Could (and probably Should) be higher for my back. I have a friend that uses the plastic Costco table like Janstar. Only I don't think the legs are adjustable because her DH fixed leg extenders with PVC pipe. Made a little frame that the legs of the table fit into. Nice height for standing.

    Minda--I hope this helps. My husband went to Home Depot and bought unfinished kitchen base cabinets (you can get all drawers or a cabinet and a drawer). He bought 4 with all drawers. We put them together in pairs and then backed them up to each other and put a countertop on them. I had the countertop extended so that I could sit to it too. Mine is 4 feet wide and 6 feet long--but the great thing about it is that you can make it any size you want----whatever fits your room and suits your needs.

    OOOOH Marcia, I'm wishing I had a tiny bit more space right now. That's awesome.

    Here's my little space. It's 2 higher than standard cabinets for comfort standing and has a long counter on it....second half of the counter is DH's play space...it's only right since I have the rest of the room and we "share it" LOL.
    He's tall so it works out well for us. I have kid's play foam at my feet so it's comfy standing for long periods but I also have a bar stool if I'll be there a while.
