    It is a great table... Keep in mind that you can do something similar, but on a smaller scale. I made mine with 3 bookcases from Ikea, but there are pics of ones out there with even just one. The really nice thing for me is that, in addition to the storage it allows, I've got a counter height work surface. I've cut for hours - literally - and not gotten a back ache.

    You can see mine here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/mission...e-t212058.html

    To make a smaller one, just use one book case (for example, in the second pic, just the one on the far left end). That size would be about 30" wide and 15" deep. Depending on room, you could use the top as is or add a top anywhere from that size to a few inches larger all around.

    Mine is being put up today!
    I am pushing the bookcases back under the table about 6 inches so I don't hit my feet against them. I can then work around the entire table. My top is done in oak. Looks really nice, the builder did a great job.

    I love this look! Right now, both of my upstairs bedrooms also have to double as guest rooms so I am limited as to what I can put up that is permanent. I use a folding table on bed risers for my cutting table but it is easily taken down when family comes to visit. One of the rooms where I sew has a more permanent arrangement of folding tables that can be shoved around to pull out the day bed trundle when necessary. Not perfect but I am grateful to have the space I do.

    Looks very similar to my niece's setup which I totally envy.

    I hope to get the room together this week. It will still be rough, need to paint and such, but hope to get some pictures to share. Just need to learn how to share pictures here.

    That looks like it would work so well. But I can not take my eyes off that chandelier. It is so dang cute. I want one for my bedroom and another for my sewing room.

    That looks GREAT - you could also do a single door with 2 bookcases, right? that would make a nice table for those of us that are space challenged!
    Her blog was very nice, but when I clicked on the tutorial heading, it wanted me to sign in to facebook or twitter, and I don't belong to either. Have you noticed that most sites are like that now? Other than "biting the bullet" how does one go around that?

    you and I both. I thought I tripled the size of my sewing room just by taking down the ironing board! Wish I had started quilting BEFORE investing in our current home.

    I made this and this is how I do it! I place the bookshelf units next to the sides of my guest bed and the two hollow core doors on top. If i have overnight company I simply take the doors off and stack them lengthwise against the wall and move the bookcases back. Very easy!Name:  Quilting Table.JPG

    thanks! I need something in my weaving studio to store yarn and warp yarn. This will be great. I will just do one door and 2 shelves.

    I noticed that her studio is really her garage. She must live in a warm climate and doesn't need to store the car inside.
