Bespoke sewing table




Apologies for dreadful picture quality but they were taken in a friends garage, I now owe this friend big time cos he hacked and ikea ingo table and I now have my very own bespoke sewing table!!

Now this is not a tutorial, there are plenty of those on t'internet. We looked at several of them and use bits from each.

Soooooo this is the finished result



Pretty nifty huh? Here are some (very grainy) action shots





Yep I said quality of pics wasn't good!

So what do I think?? I think that for fifty pounds this is a pretty awesome table, I have quilted a small lap sized quilt on it and not having to drag is over the hump of the sewing machine is pretty fab, for normal sewing too I get a much better view of the sole plate and what's in there and I also get a far better view out of my window as the machine isn't blocking my view!

Things to bear in mind - give yourself at least a day to do this, you need someone with a relatively good knowledge of DIY plus tools, jigsaw is a must plus spade bits for your drill. Read lots of the tutorials on the Internet they all have slightly different advice and ways of doing it, decide which suits you best.

And have fun! Me and my chum David had a blast.
