Until I can make a nicer sewing table with a lift in it this will have to do.

I made it all out of wood that I had in my shop. I had a recycled piece of some 1/2” soffit particle board that I got from a nearby construction site for the top, and then a piece of 1/4” yellow birch ply that I had on top of that for looks and a little more support. 2×4 frame and legs. I used 2×4’s for hangers for the shelf that the sewing machine sits on. I made an insert to fit around hte sewing machine starting with a cardboard template that I cut.

I think it measures 24” deep, 53” wide, and about 30” tall (I think it’s too tall, Ill probably have to knock some off the legs).

Someday I’d like to make this

Thanks for looking!

Looks good to me. What do you sew ?
I do my own sewing on occasions. I have an old pedal powered singer table unit. It’s great, becasue when I sew rubber or other heavy materials, I can just turn the wheel by hand and take it real easy.

It’s more sew for my wife (ha) but I ocassionally sew some bean bags for bean bag toss and the ocassional patching of my jeans. Hopefully my wife can pick up some good skills on this thing.

Seems pretty functional to me.
One suggestion I would make is some type of edge banding and a radius cut; especially on the edge closest to the feedside of the machine. Looks like the edges of your wood might snag at material that hangs over.
