DIY Sewing Table

An unplanned post but when things happen
 and being a good blogger
 the camera came out to follow progress.


This was my sewing machine a couple of hours ago.
Before a mix of 1 male, Power tools and a Facebook link by
Retromummy a few weeks ago came into play.

Let me just add that the "1 Male and Power tools"
don't play very often so this was a bit risky!



Fingers crossed this works because a table with a hole cut in
it really is of no use if it doesn't!


"Look Mummy, Daddy made a hole"



Let's not discuss what was being said here :)



Fingers Crossed


YAY .... SUCCESS
Now just the right height for quilting, less stress on
my shoulders and so much more surface space
than the silly Janome extension table that moved around.

Thank you Glenn, you're a keeper :)
Oh and thank you for the new header also xx

Hugs, Sharon

  7. What a great husband! Please pass along my compliments on a job well done! Isn't it great when the man of the house is able and willing to do jobs like this? (It's just one less thing that *you* would need to do!).

    My own Dear Husband had the reverse project: he had to make a filler piece because my current Janome had a smaller footprint than my previous Singer. But, he did it and it's wonderful. :-)
