When I adapted a sewing machine table for a customer to fit her machine I noticed it had hinges with barrels that stuck up off the table.
These might be a problem when moving cloth across the table under the machine. I didn't have an answer at the time, but later I came across a sewing machine or card table hinge that would do the job.

|Daylight on your monitor|
If you are right-handed it's good to have natural daylight coming over your left shoulder when you're writing. If, however, you're trying to see something on a computer monitor in bright daylight, you can be straining your eyes to read it. This problem will depend on the time of day, the time of year, and the position of your desk.

No two people use a desk in the same way, even to do the same job.
My approach is to find out how a person likes to work at a desk, where the desk is to be sited, what equipment and supplies are needed, where these should be stored, and to shape the desk to make it comfortable to use.
You can see how this works on my Custom Desk website design process page.
