    New Cutting table

    This is the table hubby made for me. I wanted a way to store my rulers in my cutting table and
    he made it so that I can pull the drawer from either side of the table.

    I didn't want the table wider to accommodate the length of the legs, so he used the clever little
    hinges so that the legs could be folded up and then when the sides are lowered they do not stick out
    past the table top. He would have preferred to make it wider to accommodate the legs, but I just
    wanted it the size of my biggest cutting mat when the one side is down.

    I love the drawer and I can but baskets/storage boxes on both sides of the bottom shelf

    Great job! They are such keepers aren't they! Looks like you get to keep the treadmill in your sewing area also. Hmmmm I wonder what gets used more the rotary cutter or treadmill! I know my rotary cutter does!

    Thanks for the sweet comments. Hubby is a keeper. I love the comments on the treadmill...yes the table get used more than the treadmill. I try to be good....but creativity screams louder than exercise....maybe I need a really loud trainer. Funny no one noticed the Cougar paw in picture #2. This is a multi purpose studio...I have infringed on the re-loading/hunting side and I get reminded of it all the time! The other half of the studio is mine....all my toys on
    that side. Thanks again for the nice words...I'll share them with hubby.
