    Great cabinet for your sewing room. Plenty of storage and a great cutting area.

    [QUOTE=joyce888;5613981]I've been waiting to post these pics when my sewing room was cleaned and organized. Needless to say that hasn't happened yet.

    The cutting table is made from two 24x60 unfinished base cabinets. We joined them back-to-back and made drawers for the false fronts. We made two drawers in each of the centers. Every drawer had to measured and built exact because the cabinets though the same, didn't measure the same. The top and sides were finished with Birch plywood and trimmed out with 1x2 birch wood. The cabinet has white pickled stain with a satin varnish. The cabinet is supported with eight 4" round bun feet (felt bottomed) so I can move it if needed. The overall finished cabinet is 48x60 and 37" tall (I'm 5'8" so it's the perfect height for me).

    QUOTE]

    Absolutely beautiful! I love the pickle finish too! I've been eyeing an Ikea kitchen island but your idea sounds better! Thank you for sharing the photos.

    So gorgeous and so functional... can't beat that! Counter height is perfect, such a brilliant idea to use them back to back. My hubby isn't a handyman but my good friend's hubby is. Hmmm.

    That's what I want!! You did an excellent job!! And your husband must have been a good helper. But I can tell it was your plans, not his. I'm glad you straightened all of us out about how you did most of the work. Good for you!!!! We are capable of doing woodworking! Some times we need a helping hand on certain aspects of the job.

    Very, very nice. So admire that hardwood floor too. I am looking forward to having a sewing room that is not in the basement when we move next year.

    Joyce888,
    You and your DH did a wonderful job making your new cabinet. It looks like it will be a wonderful place for your cutting mat; love all the storage too.

    Me three! Love the cabinets with the pull out drawers. So easy to get to stuff that generally ends up way in the back and you forget you have it so you end up buying another. We also put base cabinets in my sewing room then added counter on top. Wish I had the choice of the roll out drawers. Very nice job both of you!

    Ooooh, very nice! I'm tall too, so having a cutting table the right height is so much more important than most think. Plus you were thinking, when you added those wonderful drawers for storage. I wish I had the space for one like this. My tubs of stash are under my cutting table ( old dining room table). Good work!

    Love your new storage unit/cutting table. Sooooo much better when you can have everything (or most everything) in one spot instead of having to hunt for things. **Ahhh.....someday**
