    Great Sewing Table-Inexpensive/Just Need Some Room

    When I posted some pictures of a quilt I was asked "what was it laying on?" I decided to post pictures of my sewing table that my hubby made for me. It consists of two doors that are hinged together. If I needed more floor space for something I can fold one door down. Seldom do I do this as I seem to use the full table space more often. The finished top is 56" x 72". He then made a cutout which accomodates both my Viking and my Brother sewing machines and puts the throat plate flush with the table. I took picture of the leg work he built for the machine side which is really sturdy to bear the weight. The other half just has spindle legs that screw on and off. The bare wood edge was added so that when I am sandwiching a quilt I have a lip to clip the backing to in order to keep it tight. If you have the floor space it is really a terrific and inexpensive table. Maybe some other husbands will look and have more ideas to add to this. Hope it helps someone.

    What a great work table. I wish I had the room for something like this.

    ohhh great table , wish, wish, one can also go to IKEA and buy two tables and hinge them from the middle on the bottom of the tables or add a clip that you can disconnect them if needed. you can also buy legs that adjust in height
    . I think I'll look into that myself as I have 5 tables plus a cutting table set up now and am always wanting and needing a larger table when binding my quilts

    At one time I thought about this but do not have the room. Looks great!

    What a great idea, but I also like the ikea idea since hubby no longer does woodworking of any kind.

    Nice job, great to have the options. Unfortunately, not all DH's are woodworkers. Ask me how I know.
