    You're amazing! You can run that sewing machine and a saw. I'm impressed. Nice job!

    Very clever. Good job.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    You are definately a "problem solver". Fabulous job. I envy you the ability to machine quilt on a regular machine. Happy stitching.

    I just found this thread from a couple of years ago.

    What a great idea. I've been wanting to make myself something like this, and I think the photos and directions that were initially supplied have solidified my resolve to try to make one for myself.

    Thank you OP & thank you whoever bumped this up. I have a standard office desk that I sew on. Since I'm 6'1" with a 36" inseam, my knees are quite close to the underside of the desk. (at work, I had to take out the center drawer) If I did a cut in & dropped the machine (not a cabinet machine), I'd bump my knees on the dropped wood. Owie. (Knowing it is there & staying away from it does not work for me.)

    I have an old (something or other) machine with a vertical bobbin. I've been thinking of setting it up as my FMQ machine (the bobbin thread doesn't have to make that 90* angle like a drop in bobbin.

    This table idea will work for setting up that machine for FMQ!
