A couple of years ago I built my wife a sewing table for her sewing and quilting room. The original table was oak, 8’ long, 26” deep, and 25 1/2” tall. There ws some room left over, so she asked me to build her another table like the one she has. This one is the exact same version, just shorter. She now has about 12’ so sewing table to accomidate her 5 sewing machines of all kinds(she’s like me—we need more tools). I put 4 drawers with full extention slides, going from large to small (that’s what she wanted—- I’m not to argue), and built a jig to recess the pull handles, used a router and a spiral bit, and waah- laaah. I used MinWax Golden Oak stain lightly applied, let dry good, and 4 coats of MinWax Poly, buffing between coats with 0000 steel wool. Finished.
Oh and by the way. I have to use the direct links when I post anything, cause my wife went in and cleaned out some old files of hers and mine, and accidently sent my project file #s to the trash bin. I forgive you, hon.
That’s the reason for the links. Sorry. Thanks for looking, and all comments are welcome.

Beautifully done, Rick!

It IS good to have a wife with her OWN version of power tools. They seem to understand …. :-)

I keep promising my wife that I will make her one of these. I marked it as a favorite. Thanks for posting it.
