    No more bouncy table! It looks like it would collapse, but it's in there nice & tight, and it's not going to move. Sa-weet! Now I can practice FMQ "full throttle"

    Okay let me get this straight, if you are innovative and thrifty you might be a redneck? !!!

    Great fix! I have the same tables, the plastic box and the wood! It never occurred to me that I could fix the bounce and vibration like you did.

    Hope it works! Please becareful that it doesn't fall on you/or your legs! I have laminate floors, so I don't know if the carpet was the problem for you. My DH cut a piece of plywood the size of my table, used the router around the the edges & sanded it ( no splinters)! Mine was trying to sag in the middle, forget using a cutting mat on it, and my machines would dance all over it. When I used my serger, well let's just say "game on."
    If yours doesn't work here's a back up plan!
    Good Luck!

    HAHAHA glad to know I am not the only one to do this kind of thing. Was wondering though how in the world did you manage without duct tape and velcro?

    Just an idea, but you could glue all those wood pieces together under the table, if you think they might fall, I say good job solving a problem! I love those good 'ole homemade problem solvers, they don't cost a penny.

    That sure looks like something that I would do too. lol I am a great improviser and yes, duck tape fixes a lot of stuff.

    I recently attended a quilt retreat and one very smart lady brought along bed risers which can be purchased at Walmart. She put them under the legs of the fold away table used for cutting...and it was the PERFECT HEIGHT! Just wanted to pass this along.

    absolutely! i am a big proponent for use of duct tape in everything! but it also needs a bit of color... a little bright red duct tape. maybe a touch of yellow here and there?
