    This is what I found at our quilt show in Fort Dodge Iowa last week for only $10.00. My 201 works great in it. Just a little deep, but for now I just put a book under it to make it level with the top.

    Since I saw the first one of those tables on this forum I've been looking for one. So far no luck. I'll keep looking.

    I am going to be painting my Cadet Singer sewing cabinet, which was a blonde wood cabinet. The previous owner tried to stain it. So, I have been looking to find something that would look fresh, and elegant, if that is possible with painting wood? These cabinets look very nice! I am thinking of a burnt orange color, or just black.

    Good Luck on your quest for a table like that. I have one that I bought 45 years ago and it was second hand then. Paid $7 for it, quite a bit for those days. They are handy.

    I used to have a table just like yours, gave it to a friend and sadly her house burned to the ground last year in the Steiner Ranch,TX fire. I used the table with my Bernina 1031, wish I still had the table. I think I paid about $50 for it in 1992.

    The one I painted was not as good looking as this one- I would have left this one alone. They do turn up- I'm not kidding when I said everyone had one in the 1970's. Laura

    I think I saw one of these tables at the SA last week. I already have one with a narrow opening for my Elna's freearm and another for my serger. The serger one looks like the one Laura painted pink with the larger opening. The serger one fit my 301 quite well before I found a cabinet for her.

    Could you make one? IKEA sells adjustable height legs. Or they have a wood leg kitchen table that's unfinished that I think is pretty inexpensive. Here's where someone cut a hole in a desk for their machine- http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/07/m...wing-desk.html
    not exactly right, but gave me some ideas.....if you cut down the legs of a table, or used adjustable legs, and built a shaped platform to the left, wouldn't that work? ort of like the MUTT, only for electrics? Just a thought. I could be babbling, here. Laura

    I need to dig mine out and see how it works - mine looks like it goes to a free arm machine - it seems like you would want a light weight machine to go in and out of one of them very often.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
