    Featherweight Cabinet,

    I gots this from DH for Christmas, although I found it and took him to help me pick it up. He said, "Merry Christmas". as he was loading it. Yea, romantic is not his forte. Hope pic loads. Already had the Featherweight. Does not have original knobs on it and someone put lion feet on it which hopefull can be removed but they do help protect the bottom of the legs. Very happy with it.

    Oh what a great treat, minus the romance. What a wonderful present. These seem to be very rare. I have only read about them and never seen a real one.

    They're VERY rare! These routinely sell for around $1500 - $2500. Looks to me to be in GREAT shape! Congrats on a great hubby and great Christmas gift!!

    I'm so jealous. I saw the exact table on e-bay and I really wanted it. I did not bid don't remember how much they were asking but I think they are so cute. Congratulations. Enjoy.

    Congratulations! Looks like a very nice table and your machine looks right at home! I've never seen an original just a remake of one. I hope to come across a nice one for my collection of FW's one day!

    Why is this not Romantic? Obviously, your husband loves you and is attentive to what you want/need. What's more Romantic than that?

    I agree with pasovasz. It's not romantic in the Hollywood sense, but it beats him giving you cash & offering to loan you the truck to go pick it up by yourself!

    Oh my goodness! Most of us would fall over if one of those came home with our husband. I think he is GRAND!

    Wow its a beauty. Educate me how did you know it was a FW cabinet? I have never seen this type before, but if I did I would load it up right away and bring it home.

    I saw one on ebay for $1500.00, so you have found a true treasure.

    How did I know what I was looking at? Because Nanna Up North posted hers on November 6, 2011. Never even knew that there was something like this. Seen it in a very large resale store here, went home, smacked myself and grabbed HB and we went back and got it. Figured it would be gone but was still there. It is missing the spool rack inside the door and there are four braces that hold the machine solid, someone bent the ones down that are under the fold down table of the FW, not gonna mess with them, might break off trying to restore to original position. Has lionhead knobs on it, through a PM was informed this is stock along with the feet part. Still waiting on any and all info I can get or find on it.

    Since these are so expensive, I thought i would let you know that there is a pattern for one to make out of wood. You could google it--I forgot where I got my pattern. Yes, I would love to have an original, but not for the price they want. I know they are rare!

    Romance is highly over rated, if you ask me. Wonderful gift!

    You are one lucky lady, those old cabinets are very rare. I think there is someone out there now that makes a reproduction one, but they are very pricy and the old ones are on the moon!
