    That's a good idea to have the table even with your sewing machine! Aren't husbands brilliant (and thoughtful) sometimes???

    I have a 4 ft and a 6 ft. Tom made booties for each. They are so easy to put on when I want them and take them off when I don't.
    He made these tall ones for standing up pinning or cutting.
    He made short ones to place the table top level with my sewing machine table. I just choose the ones I want.

    Need a handy hubby though!
    My hubby isn't very handy, so I bought my own electric tools. Just decided to do it myself. You can too! :thumbup: My favorites are my drill, electric stapler, and electric sander. Arrr, Arrr, Arrr (Anyone remember Tim the Tool Man Taylor LOL) Right now, I'm using the risers from WalMart, but if I want to reposition my table, it's a hassle. I'm going to try the PVC. Thanks for the ideas and the pictures. :-)
