My grandmother, who passed away about 27 years ago, gave her old portable sewing machine to my wife. I built a cabinet for it. The top folds out and the machine lifts up for use. It is made of red oak with early American stain. Lacquer finish.

Beautiful work! Your grandmother should be proud. Sadly, nobody does their own sewing anymore. That can apply to woodworking too. That’s waht I like about LJ’s: people are still craftsmen here!

Reminds me of Grandma’s sewing machine when I was very small. It was in the end of her bedroom – always ready for use. Wonderful work!
