After months of sewing at my dining room table and lots of backaches, I started looking for a sewing table for my new sewing machine. I realized quickly that a new sewing table was out of my reach. So I started searching the web for a inexpensive solution. There wasn't much out there so I came up with my own solution. It came out so great I thought I'd share. Here is a link to how I did it.

YOU are a genius! What a nice solution! I see those old cabinets all the time on craig's list often for under $50 WITH a machine inside! They are solid wood normally and made better than most new ones. I'm not good w/ tools but I can see how this could be done and yours looks great!! I just spent too much for a janome table and passed by at least a dozen cabinets like yours. I could have had a nicer table for a fraction of the cost !

Wow - that looks like a great tutorial. Very detailed.

I will add here that I adjusted the height of my sewing table by buying an office chair ($15 at the thrift store. Perfect condition.) and lowering the chair!
