    I agree that having a table that the machine sits in is better for your shoulders and back. I bought a small table and I butt it up to a larger table for more working surface. I also have a small table I'm able to put to the left side when quilting a large quilt.

    I bought the Bertha table from Arrow for oversized machines.
    It was 500 dollars and so new on the market that it was a bear to put togather. It had flaws in the instructions also.
    Regular size machines have many models to choose from.

    After researching my options, I bought this table last year and love it. It is strong...like a commercial table. I bought the quilt professional with the extra space on the right side.
    I also bought a plexiglas blank insert as an accessary and can use it as a light box.
    The company was good to work with.
    Good luck.

    Does it really make a difference to have the machine sit down in a cabinet for quilting? I do not have an extension table for my machine.

    What type of table do you use?
    I purchased an adjustable table at IKEA. I chose the size that fit in my space (4'x3') and it is low so my elbows are bent at throat plate level and I am not reaching up. I use an 18"x24" clear extension table with my Bernina. You can use the space underneath the extension for scissors, pins, etc.

    Hubby made me the table in picture #1 and then made me the extension table for the machine in Pics # 2&3.

    Table when opened completely is 4'x8' and wonderful for pinning finished project.
    ..other than really LARGE ones.which I don't do too often.
