Sewing table modification

Sewing Machine Table Customized

A client acquired a sewing table with an existing swing-up sewing machine and needed it customized to fit her machine.

This involved removing the existing sewing machine and swing-up hinges, cutting the top of the table to fit the base of the client's machine, and fitting a supporting shelf.

The depth of the sewing machine base was measured and a shelf cut from Baltic birch plywood to fit under the table.

The base of the client's sewing machine was wider than the top, leaving a gap behind the machine when it had been lowered onto the shelf.

To stop fabric being caught in this gap I made an oak spacer with a carved handle to slip into the slot behind the machine.
