    that is so wonderful, what a gift of love, my dad before he past away built me a work station for all my crafty stuff, I lost my house and everything else, but I have that work station in the shead here. Penny

    I made my own. I had a mat with a bad tear in one corner. I also had a large plastic lazy susan. I traced the upside down lazy susan to size the mat into a circle. Then I just glued the mat to the top of the lazy susan. Works great.

    My husband built a workspace in the spare room closet with a dresser big enough to put the mat on. I will clean it up this weekend and post a picture!!

    He IS wonderful! How lucky you are to have a dad like him.
    I'm amazed by that cutting board. First of all it looks very large, and second it's on it's own little feet it seems. What do you place it on, or is it on a stand of some kind? Wow, I love it!

    My DH built a sewing space in the spare room closet with a dresser big enough for the mat and a large ruler holder. (I will clean it up this weekend and take a picture!)

    I have the Olfa 17" & 12" and use them all the time! I also bought both sizes for my DM & DS and they thank me all the time! We don't know how we ever did without them! What a breeze to use when squaring up blocks! They are worth every penny I spent on them!!

    I love my Brooklyn Revolver and use it constantly. Surface very chewed up; have been rubbing it with a pan scrubber (someone on the Board's suggestion) which has helped some.
    Pat Yamin isn't selling them right now, says it's become too expensive to have them made.
