Hello !
I'll be moving out at the end of the summer, and I'll have a dedicated guest bedroom/sewing room in my next place.
I have to built a custom made sewing/quilting table (no ready made available) so I need to make the drawing and give it to the carpenter. On the internet, I fand some pictures but they are not close enough.
If any of you could take and post some pictures of your quilting table top and bottom, with real close-ups, I'll be truly grateful.
Fyi, I have a Bernina 530 (new generation) with the smallish extension table that comes with it.
Also, what kind of table structure is best for the table ? Currently, I'm sewing on a dining table that is not sturdy enough (cannot go full speed bc of vibrations, I tested the sm on the floor to make sure it wasn't the machine).
And last, I will use the sm both for sewing and quilting, so I won't let it sit in the insert. What do you use to cover the insert ?
Tia !

This is a small picture, but you can see that the insert is the plastic one which came with my machine. DH shaped the opening and made a small rim for the edge of the insert to rest on, and the legs of the insert give finer adjustment if needed. I use mine for garment sewing and quilting, too, but it is always sitting down in the insert.

Hope this helps. You can't see the details of construction, but your carpenter will know a lot about how to get results.
