    My new cutting table

    I made a base using 2 x 4's and locking casters. Then I put my old jetmax cubes on them leaving the center open for mats, rulers and baskets of cutting stuff (templates, etc). I used the top from my old cutting table (this one: http://www.sewnblog.com/wp-content/u...10_4511064.jpg ). If it proves to be too bendy I'll get a 3/4" piece of plywood to replace it. I can't wait to cut something on it! (please ignore the horrible mess around it. I'm still organizing). I still need to add painted trim to the bottom edges to cover the sides of the 2 x 4's.

    btw it is 34.5 inches to the top surface. If it ends up being too tall for me, I can remove the top cubes and put something else there (probably 2 x 4 braces far enough apart to allow baskets in between).

    Beautiful! Even your mess has the seeds of a great quilting room. Enjoy!

    Oh, that is awesome! I had some of those years ago when I was into paper crafts - stamping, card making and the like. Never gave using them that way a thought. It'd be great for most any kind of craft - lots of storage as well as a nice work surface.

    Great idea, thank you for sharing.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
