    The only thing I would change would be to have your cutting table out in the open so you can walk around it. I find that I use both sides of my cutting table depending on what I'm doing. I also spread my projects out on it when I need to and need both sides open.

    Have fun.
    Yes, that's my goal, once I find something I like better for cutting. It will definitely be accessible from all four sides.

    WOW!! So much room. Starting out great. Love the cubicles. One thing you could do with your cutting table. I've seen them made higher with PVC pipe put on the legs. Makes it much easier on the back. I have my table raised with bed risers. Added 6 inches.

    Check out the "workstation" unit. That would be fabulous for a cutting table could have the unit in the center of the room to walk around it.

    We saw that when we were at Ikea. I didn't think the flat surface was big enough for cutting, though. My cutting mats are 70" long, and fit perfectly on the table I have. So it would be hard to go back to a smaller area.

    I do have one suggestion, for your cutting table, I would put them up on bed risers -you can get them at walmart.
    It brings the table up to a perfect hieght for cutting and saves your back.

    Love your space. Wow, you have so much room. You even have enough room for a longarm set-up. My sewing room is also my computer room and a guest room. Want to trade!

    Love your new sewing room! If you want to save your back when you are cutting, get a set of 4 bed risers and put under the legs (Ikea, Wal~Mart, Bed, Bath & Beyond) for about $10 will really make your back much happier (assuming you are taller than 5'!!). Can't wait to see the subsequent pictures!!!

    Wow, tons of room. Love it, love it. Mine is not nearly that big. I converted my 2 extra bedrooms into a sewing room & the 2nd into my cutting room. Hubby just finished making me 2 table tops (forming an L shape) in my sewing room with 2 recesses for my Juki 98Q & for my Bernina 820. My Babylock sits between them in the corner. My "new" vintage Singer 128 sits on a shelf above the table tops. One side has drawers for storage & I have 2 cupboards for other storage & a big double closet. One of these days I will post pics on here. It's not completely finished yet though.
