This craft table is available from Walmat, but note that online stock was limited the last time we checked.

Good storage

Reasons to avoid

Centre storage could get in the way

Designed for two people but equally well suited if you need space for longer output from a Cricut Maker 3, this home office desk makes for an excellent and minimal-looking craft table. Its centre section will hold a tower PC but it can be used just as effectively as a storage space, and there’s a handy drawer above for any tools you might need. The low open shelves at each end give you more room for stacking books and baskets, and the whole thing is easy to assemble thanks to its minimal design. Again, this craft table is offered by Walmart, but stock may be limited.

The most expensive option

We like the utilitarian look of this sturdy writing desk, and its versatile storage means that it’ll work just as well as a simple but effective craft table. It has two open shelves that you can organise however you like, and as an extra bonus there are a pair of hooks on the side where you can hang headphones, backpacks or anything else you fancy. It has adjustable feet, so if you have an uneven floor you can still keep things steady, and its solid wood top feels good and weighty (and it’s scratch-resistant too), which it should, given this one’s price.

Pretty basic

For a decent craft table on a budget, you’ll almost certainly get good results from this  desk. It’s a simple engineered wood top on a metal frame, but it should give you plenty of room for your Cricut projects, and on one side it has a storage bag where you can keep some of your materials and equipment. There’s also a hook for hanging headphones or anything else, which is a nice extra, but ultimately this is a cheap and straightforward table that does the job and not much more.

The best craft tables for Cricut: your questions answered

What’s a Cricut?

Honestly, if you’ve got this far without actually knowing what a Cricut is then we’re impressed. In short it’s an automated cutting machine for home crafters, and you can use it to cut materials such as paper, felt, vinyl, fabric, leather, matboard, and wood, using pre-programmed designs that you can create on your computer or even on your phone.

How much room does a Cricut need?

Not very much at all. The biggest and best option, the Cricut Maker 3, measures 56 x 18 x 15.7cm, so it won’t take up a huge amount of table space by itself. However, you need to bear in mind that you’ll also need space for your materials as they go into the Cricut and then out again; the Maker 3 enables you to make cuts up to 3.6m long in one go, so if you’re after a table that’ll make life easier, the longer the better.

What should I look for in a craft table?

Storage! Lots and lots of storage, because once you get started with Cricut you’re going to end up accumulating all manner of materials and tools to go with it. The other thing to watch out for is a good solid build; Cricuts aren’t especially heavy (the Maker 3 weighs in at 6.9kg), but in general for any crafting surface you’ll want something sturdy and steady.

Is a solid wood top best for a craft table?

It depends what you’re planning to do with it. With a Cricut you’ll be perfectly well off with a top made of veneered particle board or similar; however if you’re also planning on getting a bit more hands-on with your crafting using sharp tools, you might prefer a solid wood top that won’t get ruined by dings, nicks and scratches.

Couldn’t I just save money and make my own craft table?

Of course you could! If you’re capable of a bit of DIY, it’s not too hard to make your own, and there’s something decidedly fitting about having a craft table that you’ve crafted yourself. This video explains one way of doing it yourself; you can find plenty more guides online.
