I've always had this idea for a cutting table,
but never enough room to pull it off.
With my recent move, i now have the space.
Initially, i thought i would find what i was looking for at an unfinished furniture store...but was surprised at the prices.
I did not want to spend $400+ per dresser!
I've never shopped at Ikea before ...i'm more of a junker shopper, but thought i would go online and take a look...found exactly what i wanted!...and $139 each. Okay wow, price is good...probably cheap construction, but i'm not putting these in a boy's bedroom...i'll be careful with them. I sent my handy husband to Ikea to check them out and he was quite impressed. Of course they come in a box with assembly required....i said "handy husband" didn't i? Yes i did, and he spent a good portion of yesterday putting them together. All i can say about these 'cheap' dressers...not cheap at all!! Price is cheap, but the quality is fantastic. They are super heavy...draws are heavy and slide nicely. The assembly went together well...no issues. There are 2 brackets on the back of each dresser to either fasten to a wall or to each other. This will suck up the gap between them. My current work space is temporary while we add an addition to our home for my studio...so i told 'Handy' just to wait on fastening them together and he'll just shim them up for now.
They each measure approximately 63" long 19" deep 35" tall. Total of 12 drawers to hold tons!!!! And the best part...i can walk around all 4 sides and the height is good for cutting.
That's my 36" cutting mat.
I'm a happy girl.
