Drop-down sewing table


IMG_3849.jpgIMG_3848.jpgMy wife asked for a sewing table so after some discussion on what she needs, I started this week end to make a drop down sewing table with storage. as you may see I used the Kreg screws joints as I wanted to try them so I brought the kit and the wood from Bunnings.

IMG_3814.jpgnot totally finished but I am happy with it so far.

Re: drop down sewing table

Hello @Gareth 

 

Welcome to workshop! That is a fantastic idea for a drop down sewing table. The idea to put a mirror on it is truly inspired and makes that drop down panel do double duty instead of just being a plain old boring panel. Plus its an excellent opportunity to not only procure a new tool for the shop but it gives you the opportunity to do more! Just to show our readers the KREG pocket hole jig is a fantastic tool and allows you to build like the pros! Excellent build all around. I'm sure the missus will be very happy with her new sewing table.

 

Cheers,

Red

Re: drop down sewing table

What a brilliant project @Gareth! I think you've really nailed the design spec with this one, or perhaps I should say you've Kregged it. I'll have to look at getting one of these jigs myself as I've only heard good things about them. The finish you've achieved with it is enviable.

 

Have you had any feedback from your wife on the build and how the unit performs?
