    I am so lucky! I love my job!

    I work for an engineering company and we moved to new offices on Friday. My boss decided he did not want his large drafting table anymore since everything is done in AutoCADD now.

    This table has two huge drawers and 2/3 of the top elevates! I can cut my fabrics without leaning over a flat table and getting an aching neck!

    Also, the table top has guide wires and a sliding ruler at the bottom that can move up and down to cut along like my acrylic rulers. My large cutting mat doesn't even cover it!

    He also gave me a bar height chair with it, and my sewing machine can sit on the 1/3 of the table that stays flat.

    Woo Hoo!

    That's freaking awesome! Now all you need is to attach a light over the side, and you're set!

    I wish I could score something that awesome! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    So pleased for you, it will make a big difference to you. I have worked at one of these desks before when I worked at a drawing office, a lovely piece of kit.
    Love your quilt hanging on the wall too

    Tisha.

    Thanks everyone! I am so pleased! I looked up a table like this on Ebay and starting bid was almost $800!!!

    The quilt on my design wall is Flower Garden from the Fons and Porter's Fall 2008 magazine I just got. Great way to use up fat quarters and also I get a Christmas quilt out of it for me. What's on the design wall is only half of it. It finishes at 86" square.

    What a great way to recycle the table, and it certainly went to the right person!

    That looks like the drafting table I used in college. I had forgotten how huge it was...wish I had one now...wonder what the school did with those, surely they aren't STILL using them! Enjoy yours!
