Do you need a lift?
I'm here for you...I'll lift your spirits and your cutting table...take a look at this. I bought these at Walmart in the house ware's aisle, where they sell ironing boards, irons, clothespins etc. They are bed risers and are used to lift the bed a little higher so you can store things underneath. They were $10.00 for a set of 4, but well worth it. However, I'm not using mine for a bed...
spaceI use a large kitchen/dining room table for my rotary cutting table. It's wonderful, because it has two leaves that slide out for extra room. It is 8 feet long, but only 29" high. I've been cutting on it at that height for a long time...just stooped over a little. Even though I'm 5' 3"...ok 5' 2 3/4", the table was still a little short. Now that I've added these risers, I'm in cutting heaven. They add 5 1/4 inches to the table and it's the perfect height for me. No more back pain at the end of a long cutting session!!
Here's a close up of the label...I'm thinking that the bed in this picture belongs to a quilter. She must have purchased the bed risers to raise up the spare bed in the guest room to store more fabric underneath. See those plastic boxes under there...I know they're full of fabric!!!
Here they are out of the package.
and here's a picture of one of the legs of my cutting table. I didn't get a full picture of my cutting table, because 1) it's in the basement and the light wasn't great for a picture and 2) it was a mess from cutting all that Thimbleberries fabric for the give away. Once I clean it up, I'll try to get a brighter picture.
Hope this was a helpful Tool Time Tuesday. If I can save one person from a rotary cutting back ache, my job as a friend and quilter is done!!!
If you haven't seen my give away yet, scroll down a bit and take a peek. I always have mixed emotions about having a give away. I just love, love, love all the wonderful people in this world who leave such nice comments and I also love the fact that so many new people pop by. It is my absolute favorite thing when I get to see a new blog and make new friends. The only bad part about a give away is...there is only one winner. I truly wish I were a millionaire and could send something to everyone who stops by my blog. I think if I win the lottery, that's what I'll do!!
Have a great Tuesday everyone,
