That’s really 1st class! Did you design it yourself or build it from plans?

Thanks for the compliment.The plans came from Rockler and so did the hardware.I read in another post a guy built this and said if he had to do it over he would change the joints. I agree, the edge joints are splined according to plan.If I did it over I’d use edge joint router bits. Otherwise it was a nice project. I built this with my 92 y/o dad looking on so I got a lot of pleasure with this project.

Stellar job on the sewing cabinet.. We have to keep our ladies happy with their crafts and hobbies…
That is, if we want to be able to buy more tools…. more tools means more projects, plus more tools…lol.
Your wife is like mine…. into sewing and quilts and crafts, and I can’t even keep up…. Whew!!!!

This is a great project. I’m a Aircraft Electrician so I have alot of tools. One day I was driving home and remembered my wife struggling with a old sewing machine so I decided to buy her a nice one. Now I know nothing about sewing so I go to Jo-an fabrics and find these 3 nice older ladys and ask them for help. Once they heard what I was doing, they took me through everything.
I wll never forget my wifes face and that was 18 yrs ago. This past weekend she made curtians for her sons house, (19 of them.) and still brags about the machine. So I’m sure your wife is very happy. Congrats to both of you.
