Workroom Table Instructions

The table must have a pin-able surface such as Foam core insulation or R-board on top of the plywood. The next layer would be a special dense padding such as thermal carpet pad insulation, then a layer of 3/4oz batting and end with a canvas table grid cover.
The correct worktable should be your first investment. There are two major reasons for this:
1. Efficiency. Having a proper table and learning how to use it efficiently will dramatically increase your output.
2. Ergonomics. This means being kind to your back! I have heard of folks working with fabric spread out on the floor. You can create severe physical problems by working on the floor or working on a table that is too low.
If you are going to make window treatment fabrication your long-term career, then you need to do whatever you have to do to obtain and use the correct table! The height of the table should be elbow height to no more than four inches below elbow height. The closer the table is to elbow height the better it is for your back—but you still need to be able to reach the middle of the 60-inch-wide table.
Most tables are built at 32” – 38” high depending on your needs and 12’ long.
