Default Need a cart, or something to put my Cameo, Cricut Expression and printer on.

Any suggestions? I would like all three on one cart or desk, so they all reach to my Mac computer. Thanks!

I'm using a 4ft table. I have the CPU on a small table and a 4ft table next to it. That holds the Silhouette and the criciut will stay on the end. I have a computer desk that makes an "L" to the table. On that desk is my printer and the monitor and keyboard. Having the CPU at the intersection of the "L" ensured all the cables and cords would reach. I use the keyboard tray to store cutting mats

I have a vintage kitchen cart that my mom had that I'm going to use as a die-cutting station. The best thing about is that it's aqua and will fit in perfect with my 50's color theme -- pink, aqua/turquoise and black & white.

I just got the Silhouette Cameo and am going to keep my Cricut for backup. My Cricut is on a shelf of a shelving unit and the Cameo is now on a wooden TV tray. My room is very small and that TV tray sits in front of a floor to almost ceiling shelving unit. I like that the TV tray is small enough to move out of the way of the shelving unit when I need to access things on the lower shelves. It would be better to have this tray on wheels though. I'd like to have a three tiered cart on wheels: Bottom tier for the Big Shot, middle tier for the Cricut and the Cameo on the top shelf.

Target, as well as other merchants, sells a microwave cart for around $50 and they work great for the cutters.

Sound like you need something heavy duty. I used an Intermetro cart from The Container Store. Don't know where you live, so don't know if there is one close to you, but they do ship. Here is their Intrmetro solutions page:

I believe Ikea sells a sort of vintage looking one. At least, I remember seeing someone post it a while back.

Whatever you buy now, make sure the shelves are adjustable. You will not always have these same items to place on your cart, and you want to be able to accommodate new purchases.

I bought a micro wave cart too. It is on wheels so I can pull it out when I need space behind the Cameo to cut a long piece. I paid $99 on sale for this one. It has a drawer and shelves for storage. It is solid wood and I was surprised how well it is made

Like Ceramicat1, I use tabletops from Ikea in an L desk shaped fashion. I have 2 4' tables lined on one wall. Each table cost me about $20. On those tables sit (1) regular printer, (1) 12x12 Printer, and (1) sublimation printer. My work surface is a 5 ft table and extends out from the printer tables to form an L. My laptop is closest to the printers and my cameo on the far opposite end. I'm able to reach all cords/printers/machines without moving a thing. My cricut sits on the floor next to the cameo. (Haven't been using it lately)

Try Goodwill or other resale shops. I recently purchased a wooden microwave table/cart that was on wheels and had two shelves for $9. Because so many people have their microwave ovens built in a lot of them end up in resale stores. I've found several items in the Goodwill stores in our area that I use in my craft room.

I purchased a sideboard from ikea that I use for my bigshot and bigshot pro - I love it because it has drawers and shelves below where I can fit all my cutting pads, dies and embossing folders. Here is a link to a pic:

I also plan to build a "desk" out of the jetmax type cubes from Michaels to hold my cricut - again with storage beneath to hold my related items.

Here is another suggestion, it is a cart made just for the Cricut, Cameo and other cutting machines. It is the Tuckaway, check it out.

I purchased a cart from Michaels that was on sale last week. I just spent 20 minutes searching the web, including Michaels site, and couldn't find a picture. I'll have to take one when I get home. It has 9 drawers and 2 tiers. I have my cameo on top and my cricut on the 2nd. I ended up getting a second one because a friend gave me an idea to use it for 2 of my 3 printers. I also used the coaster than came with them, so it can move if I need it too.

Hi Pam, I'm not sure what the regular price is because it's always on sale. Recollections storage has been on sale 40% or 50% off almost every week this summer. It's on sale this week for $39.99. If I had to guess, I'd say the regular price must be $79.99 or $69.99
