Project Information

Nothing fancy for most of you fine crasftmen but I enjoyed making it.

A small back story. This old singer stand was our kitchen table as I was growing up. My dad had made a slate top for it and I can remember sitting at it for many a dinner. I found it in my mom's garage a few months back with a rotted wooden top and a very rusted base. I immediately started making a deal with her so I could take it home and refinish it.

I know it is nothing special but this is the first indoor table top I have ever made. Now she wants a desk to match the table top and a bigger sewing station.

I had to look a couple of times (You know you are a lumberjock when all you can see in the pictures are the Jet jointer and planer…) I finally saw the sewing stand in the last picture. looks great.

Yes I noticed those nice machines also, but he kept having this other thing in the way for a better look. Then it got through my head that was what I was supposed to look at and it is very nice also. Good job on it.

You guy's must have saw dust in your eys if you didn't see the jet dust collection system or the dehumidifier. No doubt that snowdog takes his woodworking very seously also no doubt that he is very skilled as is shown by his realy great project.

A great piece of furniture to be enjoyed for years. It's not what you see but how you see it.

A very nice restoration job. I also have a 64 years old singer sewing machine with a stand and I know the value of it. It has a small drawer on the left side for keeping tools for the machine and other small things like bobbins, needles etc. Where was the sewing machine when you were using the stand as a dinning table?

Great story and great restoration. The story makes the project unique and I bet your Mom loved it.

A great save!

That brings back memories.

We bought an old Singer treadle in 1952, for $15, when Barb was pregnant for our first Son.

She sewed many diapers, & baby clothes with it.

We gave it away quite awhile ago, & seeing this, I wish we'd have kept it.
