I have a pine ikea table (jokkmokk which comes with 4 crappy chairs. I think the $69 Ingo is the same sans varnish). For the price it’s sturdy, flat and has been my cutting table and/or kitchen table for about 7 years and it’s moved... 3-4 times. I’m pretty happy with it and it’s made of wood—not particle board or that weird laminated cardboard honeycomb stuff. I’d give it a solid thumbs up.

A table on risers works great too. I don't like the plastic ones though because they can bow in the middle.

Robbin101,
I have a sewing table similar to the first one on the website you mentioned. It is 34 inches high. I am 5 foot 1 inch tall and that table is not comfortable for me to cut on
if it is anything with large pieces of fabric and long cuts. I also have two Costco folding tables that are 29 inches high. They are perfect for me and I can walk around them
allowing me to make cuts from the left or right side of the mat. When I am quilting a large quilt I use the same Costco tables to make an extension on my sewing machine
cabinet on the left of the machine and directly behind the machine to support the weight of the quilt. HelenW

I found a dresser at just the right height at a garage sale. Then my husband got finished boards from a big box tore and fitted a top over it that was 2 feet by 3 feet, just the right size for the mat. It is perfect for me.

The height is important.

Cheap recommendations? Hmmm, I found my Horn of America cutting table for $75 at a moving sale, I stole that one! If you really want to watch costs, I would recommend Craigs List, or looking on line. I have bought really nice sewing furniture that way, I can't afford the prices that they are asking for on quality furniture.
However, as a good husband, perhaps you could make her one. Look up DIY sewing tables, and see what you come up with. I have had several friends do that and they had made some amazing sewing furniture for minimal cost. Remember happy wife, happy life ;)

Hello everyone! How are you doing today? My wife looking for a cutting table for my sewing room, she said, she found www.fabricers.com/best-fabric-cutting-table-for-sewing-reviews/, and some other recommendations from google search! It's a big investment, so do you guys have any cheap recommendations?

Thank you!!
