    Cutting table

    Does anyone have the cutting table that is in this weeks Joanns ad? I am thinking about getting it today since it is 40% off and I can get an aditional 25% off with the coupon. Is it any good?

    I have one and love it! I especially like that I can fold it up when I'm not using it and stick it in a corner. Go for it!

    Had for several years now, could not live with out it....I am sure there are better, but this one is pretty good value for the money....and it is so nice to have the right height for cutting and save your back....

    I have one and it is adequate enough. It is stable and saves the back. However, you might need it to be a bit taller or adjust the height if you are tall. I am only 5'7" and would like it to be a little taller. As with a lot of furniture, it seems to be made for short people.

    If it's the one that the 2 sides fold down, I have one that was purchased elsewhere. I agree it's a great table. I'm 5'2" and find it a bit tall for long cuts but overall am very happy with it. I also use it as an ironing surface with just a towel folded in half as well as using it for sandwhiching my quilts. I use binder clips on the edges and can do king size quilts on this table with some wiggling around.

    I have had one for several years. You won't regret it one bit. It is perfect and when I don't need it it folds up and is out of the way. Excellent table.

    Yes, I have two of them also. they are great. Not just for quilting, but great for sewing, crafting, and my worst habit- using it as a clutter-all! But best of all, they fold away, when not in use.

    I do not have the table but I do have the cutting board. I have had it for two years and it is already worn out. I use it alot, so I would not buy another one, as I do not feel like I got enough use out of it. Although, for the price you can get it for this weekend, that sounds like a great deal. I just replaced mine with a 35" by 70" Olfa.

    Wow, that will be a great discount! I got it with the 40% off coupon a couple of weeks ago and I love it. I'm only 4' 11" so it is a tad high bot for the most part it works great. Certainly is better than trying to cut things on my cutting mat on the floor or always having to use the dining room table. I say go for it and let us know what you think if you get it.

    I have one like it but I purchased it off e bay a few years back, but Joann's looks just like it. When I took it out of the box, a metal piece on the leg was broken off, Instead of going through the pain of sending it back, I went to the local welding store (I got tired of waiting for my son or husband to do it) and paid $5 to get it fixed. I ordered a thermal covering to put on it but rarely use it. I love mine. It does turn into a catch all, and I love it for wrapping presents at Christmas time, as it is the perfect hieght. Don't bother getting the plastic caddy that goes with it. It gets in the way, and keeps falling off. Enjoy.

    I have had mine for about 6 years. I love it, have had zero problems with it.

    I have had this table about 8 months & it is very functional. I use it all the time.

    I agree that it is worth it. The height is great for me & now I don't get an achy back like when I cut on the dining room table.

    For the price it's good enough. I've had mine for about a year & use it all the time. I'd love to have another one.

    I don't have it --- but a warning. Joann's coupons usually say they're good on everything EXCEPT sale items. Just a warning..............

    I had one that I used for several years from JoAnn's. After I moved, I took the top off (the top came off during the move) and am using it on my current table for extra height.

    My children went together and gave me one years ago, and I love it! I appreciate that you can fold down either or both sides if needed. I try to keep mine opened up though, and I bought a mat that fits the table when opened full length. It is a great table and reasonably priced. I'm 5'3" and it is the right height for me.

    I am on my second one. I like the height and all, but I noticed that the second one is not as good as the first one.

    My sister has one and LOVES it. I'm green with envy because we live in an RV and I don't have room for one (sigh)!
