Okay I did a search, and didnt' find anything.. I hope I"m not posting something redundant... also figured this was the right place
, I told mah guy I want a corner to corner table in my room, to function as a computer desk and craft table/organizer (With shelves under) And went about wanting to buy it.. but he figures that will be too expensive, and wants to build it...I'm thinking a 7.5 foot table one way, and 8 feet the other... with 2 or 3 feet of workspace, like a regular computer desk... Now, what can I do.. the cheapest, because.. it means I'll likely have it sooner.
I've already seen this excellent post, and if I can, I'll use the idea for the sewing machine his mum's gonna let me borrow.. probably indefinatly
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83604.0
Things I'd like it to have would be storage space underneat, but not everywhere, cuz I want my feet to fit under, specially the computer desk part of it... probably just shelves, and rubbermaid containers.
I want places for the sewing machine (mah future baby Cheesy) moniter (LCD screen so.. its thin)
graphics tablet.. scanner.. future eventual printer... all of which would be better space wise to keep them on shelves anyways when I'm NOT using them...
I knit, wanna sew.. and have a place to cut up the fabric, also i've made stitch markers for my knitting, super fun.. maybe get into that a little more... plus anything else my ADHD mind can come up with to dabble in.
Soooo can anyone give me some suggestions? Thanks :3

Hi...I just used countertops from lowes/home depot to make mine...heres a link to my craft room

you can see that I have one cabinet that I purchased with a 6 foot countertop, and use that for my cutting table (it's nice to have it up high).  Then, the other is an 8 foot countertop that is on top of my filing cabinet and desk.  works out really well for me.  plenty of room all around.

hope that at least gives an an idea to come up with something.  they do have these countertops with angled ends so that they go in to cornes well (like mitered corners).

I think the 8' counter was around $60, the 6 foot maybe around $40.

Yeah, that was my idea.. since I liked the smooth countertop surface, but then I saw that they cost alot.. which right now isn't in the budget, and probably means waiting half a year for a table.. and I can't get the machine untill I get a table for it *rules...*
I do envy your craft space.. ehehehe.. maybe one day...  Thanks for the options though... maybe if I can find some cheap little bookshelves to stick under and use as legs/support/storage... but thats still luck and.. money...
pooo... I wanted to learn how to use the machine and start making stuff nowwwwww
