Adjust the Process to Fit Your Space and Furniture!

Two old pieces of furniture combine to create a clever cutting table. A dresser allows for handy storage while the table creates a nicely sized cutting surface. Together they’re a match made in heaven.

The table was made taller for a comfortable cutting height. Now it’s possible to sit at it on a bar stool, as well.

Taunja Kelvington from Carried Away Quilting is the creative quilter behind this great idea. Her husband made it all work.

While the project looks complicated, it isn’t hard to pull off. If you or someone you know has the right tools and know-how it’s a very doable project.

Of course, you’ll need to adjust the alterations to work with the table and dresser you have. Look at thrift stores, tag sales and such to find inexpensive pieces to work with.

While exact step-by-step instructions are not provided, there’s enough info to understand the process and create something similar.
