  1. Projects Sewing Machine Platform Extension

    My wife recently joined a quilting guild and would be attending a local workshop. She requested a small platform to fit around her sewing machine to assist her with her various sewing projects while she away from home. So I quickly threw this together which worked out nicely. I threw on a quick...
  2. Folding Extension Table for Sailrite Leatherwork Sewing Machine

    I made a quick and easy folding extension table for my Sailrite Leatherwork sewing machine. It's quite useful for this application, and the folding shelf brackets might prove helpful for other shop projects as well. Here's the video… Made from 1" thick MDF, stainless steel folding shelf...
  3. Antique Sewing Machine Base Table - Number 2

    This is the 2nd table I made with some 100 year old barn oak on an old sewing machine base. I made this one for my daughter. I skip planed the boards. For the finish I used 2 coats of satin wipe on ploy. The boards are held together with cleats that allow for expansion.
  4. Barn wood and Singer desk

    After being inspired by Elwood 89's desks, I decided to make one using similar construction for my wife. She has been wanting a small desk for her computer, paying bills and other small tasks. The Singer treadle sewing machine was purchased at an auction very cheap, as the original wood was so...
  5. A Tempory Solution - Sewing Maching Table

    Until I can make a nicer sewing table with a lift in it this will have to do. I made it all out of wood that I had in my shop. I had a recycled piece of some 1/2" soffit particle board that I got from a nearby construction site for the top, and then a piece of 1/4" yellow birch ply that I had...
  6. Desk stool and sewing machine stool

    With leftover upholstery fabric from the occasional chair ( previously posted ), these two additional pieces were covered. 1. A reworked desk chair now upholstered to match the occasional chair. 2. Her sewing machine stool covered as well. The fabric left over was from the original piece which...
  7. Wall Mounted Shelf Unit

    My wife enjoys two hobbies - knitting / spinning / dyeing (of wool) and soap making. Both require an infinite number of small bottles of liquid or powder-based dyes, perfumes and various other ingredients. For the most part, these have found a place in and amongst our normal laundry room...

    had some extra salvaged antique oak boards and old singer sewing machine base that i put together to make this "secretary" that will now sit next to my bed. boards have lots of "character" (ie… powder post beetle holes and hand cut iron nail stains). the design for the top is patterned off an...
  9. Kara Hummer Layout Duck Hunting Boat

    The Boat A layout boat is designed to hunt waterfowl from a comfortable, reclined position that is very difficult for ducks to detect. I built three of these 14' layout boats over the summer from plans. See my blog for details about the boat and the build. These boats are very low profile at...
  10. Sewing Machine Table Top

    I made the top for a sewing machine base that we had. Originally we used a large piece of glass but with a two and a half year old running around the wife wanted something more secure. I built it out of oak and stained it cappuccino. It came out way better then I ever imagined.
  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    All of the under 45 LJs can just move on to the next post unless you are in a band that does weddings. This was sent me by my daughter. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Some of the artists of the 60's are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers who can remember doing the Limbo(?)...

    My fiance found and old sewing machine desk but the part inside that mounts the sewing machine is missing. I would love to rebuild it for her. Right now she leaves the sewing machine on top of the desk which isn't the best option. Does anyone on here have an idea of what it might look like, I...

    No No No, not THAT kind of Singer Seams to be quite of few people that have repurposed the old antique Singer sewing machines. Let's see how many we can get together and compare. I have 2 projects over the past 12 years involving singer sewing machines. I am now looking for a couple more of...

    Building the Lower Frame The Requirement I moved back to MN in June 2014, after nearly 30 years away, and my brother quickly introduced me to duck hunting. We're not on any of the major flyways here, so we need to put everything in our favor possible. We read about the advantages of layout...

    Walking Foot Table Recess / AKA Build Your Own Sewing Table I wanted to re-mount my Consew 226 walking foot sewing machine in a better table, and I had access to a replacement top. The new top didn't have the required recess to mount the head unit, so I needed to rout one out. I started with...

    This is a presales question for me. I'm trying to decide between the dw734 and dw735. The 734 height repeat are fixed indents like a router would have and are exposed to sawdust. The 735 has a dial and the gauge is shielded from the sawdust. My question is though, is the 735 height gauge totally...
