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.

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.
