$199 at my local Costco in Virginia. It's the "Bayside Furnishings O'Nin Project Table". They're 60"W x 35.8"D x 37"H, slightly larger than the foldable cutting tables from JoAnns. It felt very sturdy, the box said it was 200lbs.

I think would be a fantastic cutting table, and it has cubbies to store fabric or tools.

That looks nice and very sturdy! I don't have a Costco anywhere near me, so I'll have to pass.

But for those of you who are like me, someone made a similar one and posted it on her blog. She used Ikea bookcases and some kind of square top. Here it is: click here

Reading more of her blog, she said she paid $100 for it.

I just bought the Ikea expedit shelves and made a similar table. I love it-there is so much room and less than $200. I bought one of Ikea's table tops too but not the ledges. The table top is a little smaller than the two expedit shelves but it a nice solid unit with lots of storage. I didn't put the legs on it and didn't connect them in any way. They are staying put but are on a small piece of carpet. I am tall and the height is ok for me and much better than I had. I have two smaller cutting mats so next on my list is the bigger mat. I like this Cosco one too-very nice!

did you cover the table top and attach that? I thought of covering it for ironing and then use cutting mats on top of that. I like the fact of not having to connect them makes it easy to move around etc. My husband can't move heavy stuff so I have to do all the heavy lifting. The shelves are easy to put together we have two of them in the basement for hubby's record collections. Perfect size for that. I was supposed to go on a shop hop in Nov but for the price of that I can have new table for years I might have to re-think that.

She showed me that hack on twitter, and I totally copied her.
It was my first IKEA hack, but not too difficult, and left me with enough leftover budget to replace my other furniture with IKEA. It's a very large, sturdy, cutting table, and I loooooove all the cubby space.

This costco one looks nice too! It's a little taller than the IKEA hack, but I'm short anyway, so the height of the hack table is perfect for me :}

Oh, yea! I like this idea a lot.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I think with two expedit shelves and this door:

door/table top

would be perfect. Door width is 30 the width of the two expedits is 31". But once you cover it with padding and ironing cover that could make up the inch making it fit perfectly. You'd have 10 inches on each side overhang. Nice if laying out patterns, also room enough could add two shelves at each end giving you even more storage. I like this cos it would eliminate several storage things in my sewing room right now actually giving me more room. Or if you have a carpenter friend could custom the top for you. The original top she used in the original hack isn't available any more. I might try to make this happen for me by year's end. Forget the shop hop I want the table. I would just need someone to attach the door to the table and flip it up again.

I like the Costco table a lot.

At first, it seemed like wasted space in the middle but I spend quite a bit of time tracing patterns. It seems like some kind of stool or bar stool would fit there making a place to sit and work when not cutting.
