We just moved and I finally have a large craft studio to call my own. I'm struggling with how to best organize my die cutters and printer/scanner. Right now I have all three lined up on a 6 foot table, but it seems like such a waste of space, they literally take up the ENTIRE table with no space to add things to the mats or anything. Any ideas for me? I want to be able to use all three machines without having to move anything first. TIA!

Think about multiple levels. I have multiple printers at multiple levels.
On the floor is a large laser printer that sits on a dollie. On an adjustable
height table are two smaller printers. Both of these printers are on risers
so that paper and other supplies can be stored under the printers.

Not sure where you can find a stand or multi height table for your machines.

Open shelves that slide out to the front and allow for cords in back would
be interesting and great.

I had my DH make me some wood pieces to hold my printer under my cricut table. Slides out for ease, wifi so no cords.

Some people on the MB have bought and shown pics of a metal (wire) kitchen-type cart that they bought at Wal-Mart for approx. $29. It holds 3 machines. I hope you can search and find the cart that I am talking about. It might work for you. It has wheels and can be moved when you are using one of the machines, without taking the machines off the cart.

If I can find it, I'll see if MaiLei has her directions for the stand her husband make. <pretty sure it was her> It allows for the Imagine to be sitting below and the Expression on top and you can use them both at the same time if you wanted. (I take my E down if I'm using a 24" mat tho so it has the table support for the mat)

Ok.. This is from Maile Lei. Just a thought if you have someone able to make one for you.

I agree with previous poster about multiple levels. I have my printer on my library table, then a desk riser with my E above the printer. Perpindicular to my E is my I. Works well for me. I no longer have by original Cricut so I don't have to worry about that. I also have a scanner for photos and for negatives, but when I evaluated my usage, I found I tended to use it all at one time and in large batches. So I only connect it when I need it. It's stored directly below my I but is not connected to my computer until I need it.

Here's the desk riser I use for my E. I could likely do something similar over my I and put my scanner on top; I just haven't had the time or inclination to research and measure.

I cannot find a $29.00 cart at either my Walmart or online. The best that I see is a $63. wire cart with handles. I have looked at Lowes and Home Depot and have seen nothing. I will keep looking because my room is small and I need a cart so that I can store my toys in another room and roll them in to create.

I have my 2 printers and my cricut on my 6 foot desk. I have my 1 printer on a small wood stand that has enough room under it for my tray of scrap tools.

I think this is the type of cart she had in mind. Maybe it was on sale at one time.
