This table was a birthday gift for my mom. She had asked for a sewing machine table that was “just the right height” so it wouldn’t make her back hurt.
This is the first piece of furniture I’ve ever built. It is made with all traditional joinery and methods including mortise and tenon construction, dovetailed drawers, and hardwood “buttons” secure the top to allow for wood movement.
Made from solid Birch, oiled with boiled linseed oil and polished with 600 grit sandpaper. I spent 55 hours building it. It’s my own design.
