About Me

My photo
Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

My New Cutting Table - Gate Leg Table

So before Christmas, my generic cutting table from Joann Fabrics has its top come off the legs. To be fair, it was really old, maybe over 15 years old, but my husband once again filled the holes with wood putty and redrilled new holes. The next week we were out shopping and saw this table from Somerton. It can be found at Overstock.com and Walmart. Gate Leg Table    I thought it was so nice but it was my hubby who suggested we get it for my sewingroom to replace my wobbly cutting table. What a great idea!! It extends to 65 X 36 inches exactly like my cutting table but is  about 4 inches shorter which has proven to be a godsend when I am doing a lot of cutting. Being on the shorter side, the regular cutting table height of 35 inches is a little too high for me. Also it is the same height as the table my sewing machine is on so when I am quilting a large item it is supported by the table. Behind that door are shelves for storage.

Better yet, over the holidays we moved it to the livingroom to serve as a buffet table for appetizers when we had guests over.


  1. Lucky you! This new table is just brilliant for sewing/cutting...must be so good in your sewing room...J

  2. What a great BIG table!!! Love how it became a buffet table - hope it's back in your sewing room now :-)
