    cutting table with storage

    Still in process of moving on up from the kitchen table to a real sewing room ( my first sewing room!)

    Did quite a bit of thinking on how I wanted my cutting table to be and this is what I came up with. It was made similar to my kitchen island so far as the top, and I had 12 drawers of various depths in it. The top three are deep enough for the little items like rotary cutters and thread. The rest of the drawers will hold my material once I get it folded to fit the drawers. I have about 5 of the drawers filled now. I am working on a Dear Jane quilt right now with the group on the forum and I think this idea will really help speed up the process of picking the color for each of the blocks. Will be really neat to just pull out a drawer and see a selection instead of digging though the storage bins I have had to keep my material in for the past 40 years.

    I love it ...!! Don't forget a rubber mat to stand on to help relieve your back strain.. Where do you keep your rulers?
    I have seen some folks put a pegboard on the side of the cutting table...Just an idea... but love what you have done.

    Wondering at what height did you make the table top? I've tried cutting on our high table and it doesn't work so well for me. Angle just isn't right for rotary cutting. This is indeed a beautiful piece of furniture for your room.

    IF and or WHEN I get a LARGE sewing room, I will use the kitchen island idea too for cutting table. In fact if no one is around that's what I use now. Right height, walk around, drawers for storage, stool too to sit and read books or what ever. Maybe two stools for ONE visitor.

    Isn't it fun to pull a drawer and see you fab? I too have stuff in tube. Bummer.

    Enjoy your room. Love it must love it.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
