That's a nice, huge area to work with. I like that, and you have all the light. Enjoy your new sewing space!

I have a similar space I use for FMQ, but my machine is not recessed. I do plan to get some kind of smooth panel , cut out for the machine and set it on top of the desk How high from the floor, did your sewing surface finish at?

I finished at about 28 1/2" from the floor to the top of the sewing surface. That allows me enough room to avoid bumping my knees on the bottom of the machine. Having the machine recessed into the table makes all the difference when FMQing!

BTW, I used solid core doors for the tabletop and supported them on the walls and across with 2x4s so that they are nice and solid and don't vibrate when I sew. I also added a 2x2 leg under the back corner of the machine "box".

This is my own design made to fit me, my machine and my space. (If you'd like to see details of how I did this, pm me and I'd be happy send you more pics and info.)

It's almost 14 feet square plus a small walk-in closet packed full of stash. I have a 3' x 7' cutting table and a 30" x 60" ironing table also. And a flat panel TV and DVD player for watching movies and quilting videos...

This is my "de-stressing" happy place!!! After a hard week at work, sometimes I hide out here almost all weekend.
