That is some fine work with some fine looking wood!

I see the front framed panels appear to be solid wood (unless you went the extra mile to also veneer the tapered sections), is the top veneered?

Your customer should be thrilled!

Thanks!
The doors are solid raised panel. The top is veneered.

Sweet. Love the wood. I especially like the way the front raised panel doors wrap around and support the table top extention. Very clever. Nice work…

Nice build. That Walnut is fantastic, but the added bells and whistles stood out for me. I know the ladies like a sewing table to be versatile, and that tilt top, and swing door prop add space in a nice way. Did she not want a machine riser on it? Plenty of drawer storage, and that shelf behind the door could hold a machine when broken down.

She has a professional machine that when not in use will fit on the shelf behind the doors. She was after one continuous surface. They’‘ll also be two bobbin shelfs that will be added to the back of door.

That’s exactly what I was thinking. She will be passing that on to her kids at some point. Very nicely done.

Gotcha. Wifey likes her bobbins and thread spools in a drawer with a stadium seating like arrangement, so she can pull it out, and immediately see which she wants. Make sure to put on a way so the bobbins on the door back can’t move. That action of opening the door can launch them off pretty quick otherwise. DAMHIKT. Those suckers can roll a long ways. It’s funny hearing a mild mannered Female cussing like a Sailor.
