This time I want to show you how to recycle an old sewing machine using it as a bookend.

The project is simple but the result is very original. As you will see I have done it all with hand-tools making it maybe a bit more laborious especially when cutting the machine since it is a very hard metal!!

Here you have a VIDEO so that you can see step by step how I did it.
