So, craigslist had a post about a sewing table. It was at a junk shop and DH and I went to see it. It was for a machine, not a cutting table. And as we were talking to the owner, I told him what I needed...a large table, preferable 4' wide, that was not necessarily in good shape that I could cut on. He had one in the back, yet to be refinished. Yippee!
It is over 4' long, 2 1/2' wide, and the ends pull out for leafs! We got 8" half concrete blocks and put it on them. So it is high now. And I love it!!
Meanwhile, I had a beat up buffet that had been a kid's dresser for years and she moved out. It was just over 48" long and 24" wide. Went to Ace and asked about a piece of plywood to put on top...they already had 3/8" plywood cut at that dimension! Add some batting, and 1/4" gingham cover, and I now have a "big board" ironing board! Will storage built in, and already at the right height.
Now, if I could keep the cats out, I would have the perfect set up!
