    Customized my sewing table!

    I've been wanting to do this for a couple years and FINALLY got around to it. I love having my machine set into the desk - it's soooooo nice! Here are before and after pics.

    good for you... I can only imagine that it will be a lot more comfortable. I also like the curve in the desk.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Very nice desk. And I'm sure the machine is at a better height. Mine is still on a table! Did you or hubby do this, or did you get someone into do that for you? Great idea.

    This always looks so nice and I would love to do this. But my machine has a bobbin on the front not the top like yours. to get to my bobbin I have to open a little door from the front. Has anyone seen a way to mount one like mine? I wouldn't want to have to lift out my machine every time I need to change my bobbin or just re thread it. Yours turned out great.Thanks Mary

    Very nicely done. I agree, I like have my machine set in too.

    I like it too, and it is nice to get the machine at a good working height for you.
