    When I lived in my last house, I had a 3 ft island which made cutting easier on my back. In my new house, I have just the regular table, which has been a killer. I haven't done quilts with excessive cutting since it's too hard to lean over (and I don't have enough control sitting down). DH bought a custom work bench on Craigslist and I thought "I wish I had something like that to cut on" and then, duh, I ordered one like that from the guy. He was really nice, I got such a great deal on it. It's about 4 ft tall, and I can cut so much easier now. And the guy even added a shelf which my scrap box lives on.

    That is a great table! You are right, bending over is not good. I cut on an old farm table, and I'm trying to figure out how to raise it up some but still have it rock solid so I can cut more easily.

    Unfortunately, our kitchen counters are covered with tile which is not smooth -- it's bumpy -- so that is not an option.

    That is such a good idea!! I always have a hard time with cutting. I'll have to look into a higher table like this.

    Cheers!

    Many folks here talk about the bed risers you can buy.

    LOL 4ft tall. I would need a step stool. I am barely 5 ft myself. I have the problem of tables being too tall. But I like that you were able to get what you needed made for you.
