We (my fabric co-op) are looking for a professional grade cutting table to buy for the lady who runs our group. She cuts hundreds of yards a month for us and is currently doing it with rudimentary tools!

Ideally, we'd like a table with a recessed groove, like the ones you see at most fabric stores, to help cut straight.

However, these do not seem to be available anywhere, at least under my Google searching

Does anyone have an idea where one might be able to purchase such a thing?

I'm sure you'll find something if you google fabric cutting table.

Hope this helps.

From what others have said, the nasty message came from Fitting Woes, NOT Misc Hot Topics or the Civility thread.

Thank you!

Oh yes, I've found scads of cutting tables, but we were hoping to find a style that has a recessed groove, to guide her scissors or rotary blade. Like the tables you see at Joann's and other fabric stores.

There are a lot of Hancock's closing...you might be able to find one for sale.

My local Hancock's was selling the round bolt tables (shown on the website mentioned earlier) for $10.00. They weren't closing, but were getting fixtures sent from another store that were closing.

Hancocks are selling their cutting tables. Their cutting tables are really low, so if taller people will be using the table, the table may need to be raised somehow.

I'm not certain how straight the cut pieces need to be, but if the edges need to be very straight, I don't think the recessed groove is the key feature needed. Quite often after bringing fabric home from stores using the 'groove' table, I've had to restraighten the edges with a long, commercial T-square along which I run my cutter blade.

So maybe your cutter needs a long and wide flat table with a commercial quality carpenter's or draftsman's aluminum T-square.

If, however, your group just needs the edges to be kind-of-straight, then any carpenter could cut the needed groove(s) into wood, mdf (medium density fiberboard) or laminate using a router bit.

Some of the fabric store cutting tables have a metal or plastic strip with a groove that is attached to the surface of the table. You could probably find something suitable at a home improvement store.
