What better way to start the new year than your very own, custom made sewing table?! I’m sure there’s plenty of other answers for that, but all you fellow sew-aholics out there can throw me a bone ;o)
Towards the end of last year I mentioned to my husband how cool it would be to have a sewing table that fit my machine so that the presser foot was leveled with the table top. The very first week of the new year my husband returned from the hardware store with supplies and one weekend later, low and behold, I had a brand new oh so beautiful, custom made sewing table! I am a lucky girl.
Here are some pictures of when the table was being built. In this photo you can see the shelf that was installed to hold my sewing machine. The sewing machine sits on this shelf instead of the table top.
In this next photo, the table top is on the floor. You can see the custom cut-out of the base of my sewing machine.
We stained the table with a warm oak finish. I am loving my new table. Having the presser foot leveled with the table top allows me to relax my shoulders as I sew.
