Project Information

HI all
This is my 2nd sewing machine table extention arm I built.
I get $ 45.00 for each client that wants one done up.
Tools I use.
Table saw , jig saw , 2 electric sanders with different sand papers on them.
cordless drill , drill bits to pilot holes for screws to go in.
Router to make curve on bottom side ,
My last client had a plastic part that I was able to use as a pattern
To trace onto the board for perfect fit.
She wanted the arm to extend out 10 inches from the sewing machine.
What a fun way to make some side cash and for client to
Have more room to sew on. Good deal all the way around.

Yup people love these tables that extend out
Can't find email in stores.
Nice to see this made it to the top 3.
I try to be very created in my wood work and have high hopes I make stuff people need in life and like alot.

Thanks for sharing this. I might make one for myself. I''m a sewer and actually hadn't thought of this!

Did you use plywood here or regular?

Real nice tables. They'd sure come in handy to hold a wide piece on there so it does not drop off the open arm.

Cheers, Jim

Hi Taryn
Jeff here.

so I made it with recycled oak plywood from a cabinet shop.
I used the plastic inlay peace that came with the sewing machine as a pattern to get the shape just right so it
would just slide right onto the machine with ease. after I cut the piece out with scroll saw I used a router to get the
angle just right on the bottom. I just used electric hand sanders with med , then fine sand paper on the wood and no finish put on it and my customer was real happy with that. I called her 6 months later and she is still happy with her extender arm.

sorry I didn't get back with you sooner on this as I don't get on lumber jock as often now.
