  1. Projects STAND FOR EMBROIDERY / SEWING

    Wooden stand for lady who is making embroidery / sewing projects. Total hight some 25cm, beech base 26x24x4cm, slats 50x25mm, metal and beech knobs. Idea was to make it move and rotate in all directions, when holding sewing pattern. Finish wood oil.
  2. Fabric & Sewing Center Storage

    This was my first project using SketchUp. Since I have a background in computers and CAD the learning curve was fairly easy. The wife and I spent several hours designing her storage center. It had to fit under the large window in the loft and store as much fabric and "stuff" as possible, this...
  3. Cherry Sewing Table - My First Project

    I wanted to surprise my wife with a small sewing table because she sometimes liked to sew in the living room rather than in her craft room. I didn't like seeing her struggle with a sewing machine set up on a small TV tray. The table is made from American Cherry. Unfortunately, I made the skirt...
  4. Sewing box in walnut and lacewood

    Like many Lumberjocks, my favourite things are boxes. This is my wife's sewing box and it's one of her favourite things. The Lacewood is, I believe, quarter sawn London Plane (Platanus x hispanica?). There appear to be other timbers with that same name. I used the Leigh jig for the dovetail...
  5. Sewing room and tables

    Here are a few pictures of the sewing room and sewing machine tables I made for my wonderful wife.
  6. Bobbin Holder

    My daughter-in-law asked me to make this one. She does a lot of needle craft so needs to store her cotton reels for easy access. She had a picture of what she liked so I was lucky I didn't need to design one from scratch. I used western red cedar for the pole, in two parts joined together, 50mm...
  7. 1908 Singer Trundle Refurbishing

    Basically, it's just going to used as a piece of furniture, it wasn't a full blown restore. Way to many parts missing and the cost would be unresonable. The lady I did this for just wanted it looking good. You can see what I started with and in the end I think it came out pretty nice. I...
  8. Basement Sewing Area with a Cold Bar

    I did this for the same client as the entertainment center / bookshelves and did it at the same time. It was a really big project for me and they are very happy with the end product. It is made of Birch plywood and poplar solid wood. The countertop is just a standard square edge laminate piece...
  9. Custom Sewing table

    This sewing table was commissioned by a lady that knew exactly waht she wanted in a sewing table but was unable to locate it through retails sources. She wanted a table that was small enough to fit in the space she had but large enough to utilize that space well with a flip up extension that...
  10. Work Table for Quilters

    This project was completed about two years ago from this writing. It belongs in the file labeled, "Three Run Homers." The clients-a retired couple-are avid and devoted quilters. My hunch is that a day doesn't go by without their spending time on one or several of their projects. The...
  11. Cherry Stitch Remover

    My mother-in-law does a lot of sewing. So I made her a cherry wood sewing stitch remover. The hardware kit came from Penn State Industries. This is the first time I tried freehanding a handle shape on the lathe. I think it came out OK and she seemed to like it.
  12. Shaker sewing stand

    Cherry base with a pine top and drawer sides. Garnet Shellac and General Finishes Satin Wax finish. Little gift for my girlfriend. I had a really good time making this piece. The dovetails slots for the legs were handcut along with the rest of the dovetails. The drawers are accessible from...
  13. Sewing Thread Box

    I promise all my projects won't be boxes! This is a claro walnut box I made for my Mother for Christmas last year. She wanted something to put her thread spools in for sewing, and I took it as an opportunity to practice some marquetry that I recently learned how to do from Paul Schurch. I have...
  14. Dress Form

    My first LJ project :-) My daughter is in theater school, and needed a dress form. We made her a duct tape dummy, which needed a stand. DW and daughter went out to run errands and left me home to play in the shop. The upright is a piece of maple I had laying around that was about the right...
  15. Sewing Table

    First fine woodworking project. Didn't start with any plans, just drew it up in CAD to fit the window alcove it's going in. 60th birthday present for my Mother-in-Law to replace an old Ikea computer desk she has her sewing machine on, hence the "Sewing Table" title. Table top and legs are...
  16. Antique Sewing Machine Base Table

    Put some 100 year old barn oak on an old sewing machine base. I skip planed the boards. For the finish: Shellac, danish oil walnut on the remaining rough cuts. Topped off with 3 coats of gloss poly, then 2 coats of satin wipe on ploy. The boards are held together with cleats that also allow for...
  17. Projects Sewing Cabinet with Inlaid Metal Tile Accents

    I built this storage cabinet to hold my wife's sewing machine and related accessories and supplies. It's made of 3/4" maple plywood with solid maple trim. It's roughly 39" wide and tall and 12" deep and has two adjustable shelves. Each door is a plywood slab with two inlaid metal tiles, maple...
  18. Bug box

    Wanted to try this method of box making. Found a gnarly piece of walnut in my pile. Very buggy. I kind of like the contrast between the bug-eaten sapwood of the sides and the clear heartwood of the top. Made for my wife's step-mom who needed a box for some sewing supplies. This is big enough for...
  19. Sewing Box

    My oldest daughter likes to sew and for her 10th birthday I decided to make a sewing box for her. She had been given one of those fabric ones, but it couldn't contain all the stuff she wanted to keep together. So I searched high and low for a neat design and saw an old Dutch sewing box for...
  20. Cherry Sewing Table

    This is a little Shakerish cherry sewing table. It's solid cherry and being that this photo is a few years old there's quite a color difference between the table as it is now and the photo. It has aged to a beautiful deep red color. The finish is Minwax Tung Oil Finish, which I think is an...
