    Hello Everyone,

    I found this picture somewhere but I forgot to buy the instructions on how to make it. I would like to make this round cutting table. I cannot remember the site where I found it. If you know the site where this came from, please let me know. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    I hope putting this here is alright.

    What an interesting table. I like it. But I'll bet you could make it if you have a router. Round, square, rectangle, etc, any shape could be made but I think a square one would be easier. It may wear out the blades faster but if you have a lot to cut and a bunch of Harbor Freight blades, might be fun to use.

    Yes, that is why it's round. So you can turn the table rather than having to move the fabric each time. Also, a cutting mat can still be used to preserve the cutting blades.

    You can get the turntables at Menards, HomeDepot, Lowes, etc.
    and make your own.

    Also, it doesn't have to be round. If it is square-ish you can use a cutting mat without having to cut it down - that is how mine is.

    My big one is square as well (I also have both smaller Brooklyn Revolvers:roll:). It's 24" square and I just use a regular cutting mat on it.

    A friend made it for me. The turntable was bought at HD.

    Just a note ... I made one using a lazy susan/turntable ... and cutting mat... really did not like it .. It moved too easily when I put any pressure on it. I ended up with wonky cuts. when back to my old method that does not move ... and firm table and cutting mat.
    IF you have a lazy susan and a small mat ... try first ... wish I had.
