    I have two, and and have them end-to-end, so I can use both almost every day. The second table gives me adequate room to baste even the largest quilt, if I am going to tie it or handquilt it. In the winter time, it is a handy height for me to wrap Christmas gifts. I have an extra large cutting mat on one of them, which makes it easy for me to cut long strips for borders, etc. And believe me, you're getting it at an excellent price. I got mine when they first came out, and paid about $129 for them, and I still think they are worth every penny.

    I used a 50% off coupon when I purchased mine, didn't wait for sale. I think it was actually cheaper that way. Love it. :-D

    Yes, I love mine. I've had it for about 8 years. I also purchased the cutting mat for the top.

    I never drop the sides. have too much UFO's sitting around the edges. LOL

    I bought mine 3 yrs. Ago. I used it in the middle of the room without any support. It got shaky and then started leaning so bad I was afraid it would collapse (it does appear that the legs have been modified to ad some stablity). My hubby tried adding metal braces which only worked for a short time. I replaced it with two folding tables that can be set up at a nice height. I bought the tables at BJ's warehouse for around $25.00 each. I have a long one under a sunny window for my sewing machine (sometimes more than one), my ironing pad and iron and my Ott light. Also have a little flat screen TV mounted on the wall to the side.

    I have the cutting table and love it. No more back pain cutting a quilt out. I also have the cutting mat that covers the whole table, so you always have a spot to cut on. I also bought the ironing mat, that fits the whole table at Joann's when the wall was at 50% off. All purchessed at Joann's on sale.

    I was inspired to get it as I christened my friend's more expensive one ($799) during the Christmas break and noticed the difference to my back.
    My LQS has put concrete blocks under a couple of their tables for the taller girls - I envy you - bet you don't have a step stool to reach the 2nd shelf in your kitchen cabinets LOL

    I have only read through about half these posts, and maybe I got the only lemon, but I don't really like it. I have to keep tightening the screws, which aren't exactly screws and I have get a certain tool from my hubby to do it. It is almost always too wiggly and I would prefer something more srurdy.

    I have one of these. For the most part, I like it. Since it had wheels, it is easy to move around. I actually keep both leaves folded when I am not working on a project. It then can be placed up against a wall and sticks out as much as a shelf. When I am cutting, I open one leaf. You just have to pick up the side of the table and pull the support bar into place. When I am planning to baste a quilt, I pull the table from the wall and unfold the second leaf. Then it is big enough to on all but the biggest quilts. I even use it to press large pieces of fabric. I put a bath towel on the surface. It has never warped.
    It has gotten a little wobbly but I have had it for a good number of year.

    I have it too, but I find it shaky, so I put bungee cords around the legs - that helped a lot. The only other thing is because the center is not wider, I believe this is the reason for the shakiness. Bur for the price I not unhappy.

    I have two of their tables, at different homes. Love them, and yes, you can use just half of the table at a time.

    Do stores normally carry this? We are getting a Jo Anns due to open next month or so. I wonder if it would be on sale for a grand opening or coupon.

    No mine did the same thing. Maybe the change in design helped since the new one had 2 legs instead of just the one. I am still using mine and I love having a cutting table. But mine got moved A LOT since my room wasn't very big. If I had it unfolded with things on it I had to move it to get from my bed to my sewing room or to my drawers to get things. Maybe if I had been able to leave it in one place it would have been better

    That seems to be a GREAT price!! Hancocks runs them on sale occasionally but never at that price! If I had extra room, I would get one...but, no JoAnn's near me and shipping would be awful!!
