A new sewing table

It's my husband's day off today.
I wrangled him into helping me build a new sewing table.
It wasn't actually that hard.
He's a project kind of guy :-)

Were using these plans from this amazing website!
We did shave off some of the length though.
The finished size will be about 76" long x 30" wide.
Lots and lots of work space!

Eventually I want to add an extension off the back side (sort of like below)
 so I can spread out for Free Motion Quilting.

This is also another great building plan for someone who has limited sewing space.  
The legs fold up and the extensions tuck away nice and neat.

I already have a very sturdy sewing table that I have used for years.
But it wasn't all that big.
I wanted my kids to feel like they could come in and draw or color.

The total cost of this table was right around $100.
It could have been done for less but I really wanted to use a great quality of wood.
We got it done in just over 3 hours.
I'll post more pictures once she's all lacquered up!

  4. I am grateful for this blog to distribute knowledge about this significant topic. Here I found different segments and now I am going to use these new instructions with new enthusiasm.
