If you've followed me here and on Webs of Threads, you may recall a few posts about how small my Creation Station is and my arrangement of furniture within.
During the last couple weeks I've been considering an option that will kill two birds with one stone in giving much-needed storage space for my dozen or so genealogy records boxes (which includes easy access to the records), and I need to put my cutting table at a more ergonomic height. I was at a local stationery store and saw the file cabinets. Particularly the ones with three drawers. They were displayed up on a shelf so I couldn't measure by standing next to them, so an aisle so away, I found a yardstick, lucky me! The cabinet height measured 35.5"...seems good to me.
That gave me the idea to put the cutting table top on four of them, giving me a total of 12 drawers for genealogy purposes. The table top I use is a 30" x 60" heavy laminated top from an old metal desk. The desk was scrapped as it was falling about, but I knew I wanted to keep the top specifically for this usage.

I'll post finished pix later...or tomorrow.
