I just finished a quick utilitarian sewing cart for my wife. The sewing machine was our Christmas present this year. We have limited space in our apartment and the kitchen table was needed for other activities so I built a quick folding table / cart that has storage for the sewing machine and accessories. The case is a dovetailed pine box using a router jig with a beech top. Materials were in the shop, I had to buy 5 casters, 3 locking. There is a small slot in the back for the cutting board and rulers. She can wheel the cart to the room with the most sunshine and when done, it rolls out of the way. I list this under “workshop justification projects” :-)

Great job and nice work space for the Boss. Blondie does a lot of sewing as well. I made her a work area similar to this yrs ago.. I’m sure she loves this!

Such a handy, accessible and everything-you-need-for-sewing is in that one great cart. Well done!

This is nice. My mom has limited space and needs something like this. This could be perfect for her.
