The center section of this bench is a self-healing mat for use with a rotary fabric cutter. The left end is covered with cloth and can be used for ironing seams, hems, pleats, etc. The cork bulletin board is sized to hold a pattern. The gap under the back plane allows long fabric pieces to pass over the back while stitching or cutting. A lamp under the shelf illuminates the bulletin board and workspace.
Poplar, plywood, birch plywood.

Looks like someone who sews wrote out what, and how, they wanted this sewing center appointed. It has features not usually seen, plus plenty of drawers for extra storage. Either you really knew what you wanted, or you’ve made someone a happy seamstress/seamster.
