    I have had mine for several years and do like it However I bought a mat that would fit entire table for cutting and it has worked out so much better. I just remove the mat and fold when I am needing less room but use a smaller mat The table is not strong on the corners They do give when cutting so you have to be careful at that point However over all with the mat it works beautifully

    I have one that a dear friend gave to me when she gave up quilting last year. Love it, worth the $$$ even at regular prices.

    I bought this table eight years ago and love it. You can have it open all the way or half-way. I also bought the extra-large cutting mat to go with it. Both make for easier cutting days.

    It make one BIG ironing surface. I will offer one word of warning. This table attracts crap to it. If you are not careful piles of crap will be dumped on this lovely surface.
    ok this is a warning for me!!! Thanks for the reminder

    I have an older version with the storage shelves under the middle. It has the swing-out legs which don't provide the best support, but I use it all the time! I bought the full size mat on sale and it fits nicely under a bed if you need to store it for awhile. I just roll the folded table into the closet when I have company. I bought mine on sale and think it was a great buy!

    Have this table and yes the sides fold down, so you can
    have one side up at a time. Very handy and worth the money.

    I bought one when it was on sale online. Love that it fold up and tucks away neatly. Very convenient and a nice height to use.

    I also have this table and I love it - but I will warn you that the screws come out easily and it will lean. We had to "strengthen mine" with L joints, etc. but mine gets used a lot.

    My mother bought me one for my birthday and I really like it. You can use one on side and it is stable. I say get one!

    My mother had a more expensive one but I am happy with mine!

    I have had mine for years. I got two from Hancocks and one came from a friend who got it from Joann's before she passed away. I love them. Sometimes I put two together end to end when cutting fleece or side by side when I am pinning a quilt back. They are worth the money. You use it with one side down as well with both sides up. I don't think I paid over $60 bucks for them though.

    I LOVE mine. I got it with a 50% coupon and a sale, cost me $48 after Christmas. I have one side up right now. I think it is awesome! I am 5'10" and it is just right for cutting, planning, etc. I want to get the mat for it. when my sewing room is done, I will have it in the corner with one side up. When I need it, I will just lift the other side, pull the larger mat out from behind it and, voila! I am a very happy camper (no, quilter! lol)

    I bought one about 4 years ago and it is okay it is sturdy and you can use it for cutting out and for other things as well. Like basting and stuff. I have used it 1/2 up and the full table. The only thing is that my sewing room is too small for that and my 2 sewing machines and myself. They are sturdy and helpful. They are versatile as well. If you have the room it is a good deal if you will use it a lot and if not it is too tall for eating off of.
    The cost is reasonable as well, so I guess it is up you.

    You can fold it down totally and it is about a foot wide...or you can fold one side down.

    The wheels are great too.

    I can fold it up and roll it away when needed.
    Ditto!! I've had mine for years also - still in good shape.

    I got a flyer in the mail today and it's going to be on sale for 69.99.

    I was wondering if any one has one and how they like it.

    Also, was wondering if you can just have half of the table up at a time? Whether that's an option or not.
    Go look at it up - not in the box. I bought mine it weighed a ton took 3 guys from the neighborhood to get up the stairs and put together LOL. Then after that the legs do not open straight out they are on an angle making it hard to put things under it.
    I would look for the ones now that have storage under it. That looks like mine but maybe a newer model. I like it & it does fold up but I tend to have it open all the time, because I have the 34X60 mat on top.
    Thanks for any feed back.

    My friend just bought one and loves it. I think it is possible to put up only one side at a time. The cutting table works like a gate leg table. You lift the side up and the support mechanism underneath
    swings out from the center. The height is perfect for cutting - no back strain. Happy cutting!

    Yes and I love it. My husband had to replace a couple of the hinges, but no problem after that. It also comes in handy for potluck buffet dinners when I have company over.

    I bought one about 4 years ago when I was doing my beading full time and love it. I now use it for a large ironing board for my quilting. I bought ironing board material and backing (2 yds each) and it fits perfectly and I use it when the quilt top is finished and I need to do a good pressing. I am lucky in that I have a cutting table which is heavier that I use for my cutting, etc. I have used the table with only half of the table up, or just sometimes the center with both sides folded down, so it is versatile. Think you would be happy with it.

    You can buy replacement casters at Lowe's (I think). They have a whole selection of those type of wheels.
    Email them and they will send you the casters for FREE! My girlfriend leaned on mine while i was working on something with her and they snapped. I emailed the company asking about replacement parts and in 6 weeks they had sent me new casters and the part that the casters go into. it was fantastic.

    Yes I got one for Christmas and I love it - so much easier on the back and it does fold down one side or 2 then it doesn't take up much space.

    I bought one years ago and loved it and when I moved I gave it away, bought one last year and I hate it'! It just is not steady, yes you can have only half the table up but it really is kind of shaky. In fact I am buying a much better cutting table and the Ft. Lauderdale quilt show on Saturday!!
