I pick up old sewing machines where ever I can and clean them up black japan them and make a nice top
for them.This top is Red Cedar. They are a very good seller. This one is a 1942 Singer
Needs a bit of dusting down.

Dennis has a neat idea if one could retool the foot pedal and make a foot pedal scroll saw. I seen a foot powered scroll saw and it would be interesting if one could retool the singer.

Nice table! What do you do with the sewing machine itself? Would you get more for them if you built a cabinet for it and made it a useable sewing machine?
