My NEW Cutting Table!!!!!!!!!!

I so should be going to bed but I'd rather stay up and talk with you. What else is there to do on a Friday night but stay up and chat. I'm really too old and tired to do anything else! LOL! Anyhow, I'd been meaning to showcase my new cutting table---but I've been up to my eye balls in client work. I've actually had it for a couple of weeks now but it's made ALL the difference in keeping my sewing room organized. I bought it from Mr. Jim, you know the Master Tailor that I'm taking classes with who has THIS VERY INFORMATIVE BLOG. Well when I bought my industrial sewing machine from him I found out that he was considering selling his cutting table which he wasn't really using at the time. After I got to thinking about it I realized it would be perfect in my studio. And it is!!!!!!!!!! I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE it! You may recall THIS POST where I was complaining about my old cutting table being an "eye sore". Well not anymore. This baby is awesome! My Olfa cutting mat fits on top of it very well!!!!

Here are some more details:

It's 31" wide, 72" long and 37" high. It's also on caster so I can move it real easy. It has 2 SIDES so there are shelves on both sides where I can store things. That's a TON of storage!!!! It really is awesome! I put all of my client projects into separate bins so I'm not losing any of there stuff.


I pulled out the table from the wall so you could see the back shelves. Isn't that awesome. These are mainly empty containers and shelves. 

Another backview of the table.....

I'm so EXCITED about my new cutting table. It's all that I hoped and prayed for (Thank you Jesus!) No more tripping over stuff and losing pattern pieces! Yayyyy! Ok, I better get back to work. My Client's green dress (you can see it on my cutting table) is in need of completion. I'm off.......but before I go I wanted to thank all of you guys who gave me online fabric store information in my last post. SUPER helpful!!!!  Thanks you!!! I can't wait to go shopping for my client!!!!!


  1. How wonderful! I'm happy for you. I like the wheels and the storage options that come with the table. What did u do with your old table?

    1. Hey Lady, it's in storage. I think I'll sale it on Craigslist!

  2. I love it. I need one. I think I will make it my goal next year to make or buy one. I see a lot of really great ones like yours on Ikea Hackers, etc.

  3. It looks great and really professional. Storage room is always great!

  4. All the makings of a FABULOUS sewing studio!

  5. Wow, what a great table! All those shelves, and a good size too! I think there's a few envious bloggers out in the world right now...

  6. This is a fantastic new table! Congrats!

  7. Great table!!
    I was wondering, though. What do you do when you have fabric that's longer than the table? Say five or six yards for a maxi dress or evening dress?
    I wound up cutting on the floor the other day. That was not fun...

  8. That's such an ideal arrangement, very efficient and appealing.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
