Not necessarily a sideboard, could be a small desk, writing table, call it what you will.
The Top is a nice piece of spalted maple that I milled up last year. Since I knew what the base color was going to be I wanted to darken the top to match a little bit better. Two coats of Minwax #230(Early American) and several top coats of a satin polyurethane brought the color and depth I was looking for. The stand is from a 1916 Singer sewing machine that I cleaned up and applied a new coat of paint. The keys are of Yellow cedar for strength and contrast of color.
I have yet to count the rings and see which is older, the top or base.
Measures approx
H-29.5”, L-54.25”, [email protected]

Thanks for looking.

Nice piece. How wide is the top, by the way? I think sideboard is probably the best use because the sewing machine stand (attractive and interesting as it is) will make it hard for people to pull up a chair-at least that’s how it appears from the picture.

I saw sewing the machine Zinger and burst out laughing. Good thing. I installed the small electric motor and the desktop electric fret saw turned out. Saw (cloth) from a manual fret saw. The soft tree cuts to 2 centimeters.
