My wife wanted some custom sewing tables. This is what I built for her. They are made from 3/4” MDF. The top is laminated while the rest is painted. I used knock down connectors.

Nice design. I like the curve in the support. Thanks for including the finished furnished picture.

I’m going to show this to my wife. She’ll want this setup in her sewing room, and I’ll have a new project. Win-win situation. Thanks!

My wife has MS and also broke her kneecap in half many years ago. She wanted a design where she could move back and forth along the table without bumping her knee. I used a piece of thin metal to create the arc on a piece of MDF. I then used that piece as a template to create the other supports. I used a jigsaw to do a rough cut then a router with a flush trim bit.

I love it, I’d love this in my home as well if I had the room which I don’t. I have a craft area instead.
