I will be the first to admit that I am kind of spoiled when it comes to getting custom built items in my sewing area. This cutting table was made just for me by my dear hubby. It was constructed when I had a really tiny sewing spot and made to be expandable and movable.
These powder coated steel toolbox trays are available from Lee Valley tools. I also have some in my sewing machine table.
I find things are more likely to get put back where they belong if they are in a drawers rather than a container with a lid. I love having my thread out of the dust and the light as well, so this dresser drawer works great to house a portion of my longarm thread.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out what everyone else is sharing on the REAL Studio tour.
