    While it would work, I would think that you could get something much smaller and lighter and cheaper.

    They also had this one, I like the wheels on both of them - but this one doesn't have a draw

    I use an old typing table I picked up at the company rummage sale for $10. Sides lift up, has wheels and a brace across the bottom that holds a box full of batting. Sure works well when I pull it over to my sewing table for ironing or cutting or holding up the other side of a heavy quilt.

    Wish you could find a table like I have. It works very well in a sewing room. It's light, yet useful.
    Here it is.

    I have four of them (not in my sewing room, though). One from an antique store and three from eBay.

    I love those carts Kathy!! I have one and they are so handy. I found mine at a rummage sale and it was rusted badly so I sanded it all down and repainted to make it look like new!!

    Really looks like something for the garage, not a sewing roo.
    I wouldn't like the sides on it. A little too "bulky" looking for a sewing room. I do love the color though!

    If you have a Sam's Club near, they have the best organizer I have found. I have two of them. It is called a ten-drawer organizer. It is on wheels and each drawer is perfect for a project or the fabric for a project. Check them out on line.

    This one also looks like it belongs in the garage. Not a sewing room. I really don't like the sides on the table. They have the sides on so your tools don't roll off. Exactly what are your plans for a table? Personally I like wood tables they make a room more inviting. I always check the thrift shops, they always have tables. For a sewing room bigger is better. Especially if you are going to set your machine on it.
    Depends what you are going to use the table for.

    I have the Antonius system from IKEA. It is inexpensive, and I raised the height of one of tables for one to fit under. I have 2 stacked in my stash closet. The wire baskets do NOT rust and it is easy to see what is in them. They are affordable and handy.

    I also bought an inexpensive rolling kitchen cart that folds up at my local grocery store on sale. I can fold it up when I have company or roll it into another room. It is the perfect size for my 17" x 23" cutting boards with room left over. It has 2 shelves as well. It is my cutting center. I jsut didn't put on the side knife holder.

    Yes, we have a Sam's Club and Costco in our area, we belong to both - my husband keeps telling me we are saving so much money, we will be in the poor house soon.

    But thank goodness he doesn't go into my closet - I have about 3 feet or more of fabric on the floor in all different colored plastic bags. - Now that will put us in the poor house.

    But what a way to go

    They're both ok but I don't have room for either of them.

    Someone in another group also mentioned! Check out the carpentry tools! They have a cutter there, that takes rotary blades, just like we use in our rotary cutters, & the blades are cheap, like a 2pk for $1.50, so look for them when you are there! I checked the one here, but they were out at that time, but expecting more, so I plan to keep checking. I believe it's the 45mm size...

    About two months ago someone on this board mentioned the organizer at Sam's Club. I got one and it's great; tons of usable space, a flat top, wheels. The one you've showed doesn't look like you'd get much bang for your buck. And $99 is a lot of money.

    This is way too funny but I certainly have to agree!

    Looks great and very sturdy, everyone has different needs and tastes. I go for strongly built stuff, hate flimsy, shakey ready to fall apart plastic junk. That is just my way , same with sewing machines, I will take a metal, older machine ahead of modern plastic fancy stuff any day of the week. The choice is yours, you know your needs and taste. Ruth

    Almost anything can work in a sewing room - for someone and some purpose. What do you want to use the cart for? It won't work for a cutting table (unless you put a new top on it) because it's not flat, and it isn't the right height. But if you move some heavy things around on a regular basis, it is sturdy and has nice wheels. It all depends on your requirements.
