This tip might seem a bit weird but it works for me.

I have good sewing equipment but what was missing was a cutting table. I have a spare bedroom with two single beds and by placing the 2 mattresses and 2 bases on top of one another I have a cutting table which is the perfect height for me. On top of the 4 mattresses I put my cork cutting board and I pushed the whole thing into the middle of the room so that I have access from all sides.

Of course when I get visitors I can always dismantle my table and reconvert the room into a bedroom.

Love this idea!! Tell me more about your "cork cutting board" (CCB) is this something you made yourself? OK regine, I just checked out the CCB tip of 9/28/05. A good tip, too! and thanks for getting back.

I have a cutting table on rollers, but it's too short and I get backaches when I use it. Maybe I should try to adapt your ideas to solve my problem. Thanks for the tip.

What a great idea! I'll have to remember this one for the future. Cutting room and guest room in one.

This is a good idea. If I had 2 single beds I would use it.
