Default Recommend Table for Machine. . .

My husband is tired of me using the dining room table to sew with my Bernina 710. Any recommendations for a solid, strong table that won't "rattle and roll" with the speed and weight of a Bernina 710? I don't want to buy a cabinet, just a table, please. Or, what do you use?

My Janome came with a table, it is very much like a SewEz table. I bought the SewEz for my Husqvarna Viking Designer Topaz. It's a heavy machine and the table doesn't move when sewing. It's very sturdy. When you order the table they ask for the make and model of your machine and they make a plexiglass piece that fits your machine. There is a cut out so your machine sits into the table and you have a flat quilting surface.
I also bought the solid piece so my machine can sit on top when I use it for the embroidery unit.
And it's easily portable, when it folds up, there are wheels to move it instead of having to carry it.

I can second that emotion...saw a SewEZ at a quilting seminar and fell in love! I put a pressing station clamped to the side and that makes for a very comfortable and useful piecing station. I run a Bernina 170, got the plexi cutout that fits that machine...just had to add extra lighting as the older machines are great but poorly lit.

Sew Ezi or the Arrow Gidget or Gidget ll, I have both and they are all well worth every penny.

I have the Sew-Ezi and love it. Have the plastic/clear cut-out to fit around my machine and the other cut-out so my machine can be used with the embroidery arm attached.

Could you go to a thrift store and get another dining room table to use? Not sure what exactly you're looking for in a sewing table.

I have an Arrow Gidget II that I used for my Pfaff Performance 5 before I bought a Kangaroo table. Was sturdy and didn't move or shake and was easy to move.

I have a "child size desk". It has 3 drawers on the side and a pull out typewriter area. I bought it at an auction. It is a good height for me.

I use the old fashioned sturdy metal tables like they used to use in churches. I got mine at a used office furniture store for a song 20 years ago and they are still in my sewing room.

I have a Sew Ezi for my Juki 2200 QVP Mini. It's surprisingly stable.
