I am a professional crafter who also sews as a hobby. I wanted a place to stash my sewing machine, a tidier place to make jewelry, and I also needed more storage.
This craft table met all criteria in spades! I spent a day (off and on) assembling it. The only drawback if there is one is the funny screws. In the beginning of the instructions, it says very clearly "only turn to 210 degrees" or 180 or something. Do what it says! I turned till it felt tight, then when i picked up on the top to scoot it over, the top came up. The screws tighten into a fitting that apparently only works at the magic angle of the turn.
I also glued everything as I went. I highly recommend gluing as my table doesn't budge or wobble at all. It feels really strong and stable, which is nice for something that gets moved around.
Love the casters, you can move the table to clean under and behind it, a big bonus. The table looked like pine in the pictures, but is actually pressed board with a veneer. I was disappointed at first, but after using it, i really like the hard veneer, it makes such a nice smooth work surface, is easy to clean and doesn't ding up like pine would have.
I'm able to use the cubbies for storage for small parts like jewelry supplies or thread. The shelf underneath holds my machine easily. The cabinet on the right has two shelves that are adjustable and hold my organizer trays, plus room for tall things on the bottom shelf.
I was happy to be able to use the free site to store shipping to keep the cost down, otherwise I probably wouldn't have been able to afford it.
Every time I work at the table I feel like I'm on top of things, it's organized and comfortable, plus looks great!
