The Work Surface Grows
Merely spanning two tables with a sheet of plywood made working on a fairly large art quilt so much easier than trying to work on round and oval tables that the idea grew and grew. By merely connecting two tables with plywood, the center of which is supported by a small rolling cabinet, I now have created over 9 feet of flat work surface. The bonus is that it forms a return from my sewing table that also acts as a support for larger quilts when they are taken to the sewing machine. It is my dream to someday have a "real" worktable of this size with shelves and drawers under it, but until that time, this setup is working famously.
