Completed in 1986. This sewing desk and pattern-cutting table was the first cabinet work I completed after purchasing my first tablesaw. The tops have formica on them to reduce snags on the material. My late wife stenciled the trim to add some style to it. I cheaped out and used a low grade plywood since I was painting them. That was a huge mistake that I was able to look at and reconsider for the next 25 years. I should have used better plywood, even when painting. I gave the set away about a year ago.

Both are very nicely done. Great functional design and attractive.
