Arts and craft center

I needed this for so long but I keep putting off building it. Well, finally I finished it and yaay! I can now find my stuff easily (..I should've built it a bit larger).

 I designed it in order to have every place for everything.

 Hutch to organize all my arts and crafts stuff,

 ..side shelf to put my sewing machine and extra fabric.

 Which can be pulled out for additional work space,

..or for the sewing machine.

How to build this arts and crafts table.

This is my original design which I made some changes (not a lot) while building it. Final product measurements upon request.

First, I build my main table.

Cut the back two corner for the hutch frame.

Then attach the hutch frame.

Attach the peg board.
 Build the fabric organizer.


 Build the hutch (one side is open and lower board is shorter so I can easily take my fabric in and out without being tight)

Attach the hutch using screws and corner braces.

 Fill the nail and screw holes, let dry and sand.

Paint (use spray paint for the peg board).

Then build the pull-out table with shelves.

 Attach the casters.

Attach the sliders ( I only put slider at the back side, use another slider on the opposite side, I'm just making sure it's the right slider so I only bought one, the other one later).


..and now I have a place to put all my arts and crafts things.
