    That is great, I wouldn't f thought about putting material in it. If mine, it would be full of junk, but I like this.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. Will try to answer the questions...height of table top is 36 inches. My husband will be building the rest of the cabinets and sewing table, but he decided this island was something he wanted to have built for me. We went to Lowes at first, but learned that even though they called it a custom cabinet - you had to choose from their options...no room for getting exactly what I wanted. So we called some local cabinet makers and were pleasantly surprised they would build a cabinet from better materials for less cost. I originally planned to have this cabinet painted white as this is what we will do with the rest of the room...but the cabinet maker charged more to paint it than to stain it...soooo he did a great job of matching the stain to the flooring. I will post more pics as we get more stuff built for it. We are presently working on another storage cabinet then will work on the sewing table.

    Yes, I agree. That's a great piece for your room. I really like the countertop material too. Wanted to buy a house once with similar blue countertops, mostly for the kitchen, but it didn't work out!

    Wow, I'm impressed with your fabric folded neatly in your drawers! I love the cutting island. Do you have a cutting mat that will fit the top? Don't want to mar your beautiful top. Please show us more pictures as your room progresses. It's about time you had your own sewing room! Yippee!!

    Your cabinet island cutting table is terrific! I like your idea and am so happy that you have the opportunity to design and enjoy this beautiful, yet functional, addition to your sewing area. Quilters share and exchange ideas so freely that we all benefit from someone's special acquisition. Now, you've inspired me to clear off the top of my cutting surface this morning. I have been cutting out quilt tops from flannel and making piles of projects. With that said, I will get busy and not procrastinate any longer. Happy sewing to you!!!!

    Looks great. Did your dh make it? Haven't read all the posts yet so maybe that has been answered.
