Hullo Brian
Sorry, no plans; but I just wanted to say that the most important factor
in this kind of table is the *height*. Whatever plans you use, you will
be able to adjust that to suit your wife exactly. You will first have
to find, trial and error probably, a surface of a height she could cut
at with the right amount of pressure, for as long as she might want to,
then measure it and 'save' that measurement for when you get the plans.
You are a good DH!!

Hi Jeanne,

I believe he asked for CUTTING table...not sewing table. But thanks,
I enjoyed looking at KCK's great table yet again. Got to meet him too
in Houston, 2002. g I actually copied some of his suggestions for
my own sewing table! :-)

Go to Hancocks or Joann's and buy one of those they
have that has two ends that fold up. Sometimes they
run a sale on them for $79.00.

A quilting friend of mine adapted my table (hi, Carl!), so that's on
Kevin's site, too. It just goes to show that almost any table can be
improved upon!

I have one of those & I love it. Folds up and only takes up about 13 x 35"
of floor space.

When my DH looked at it, he decided it would cost him more than that to
build one.
