My daughter, Sarah, asked me to build this for her. The sewing machine is a Singer Model 66, manufactured September 9, 1919 that was originally on a treadle base. It had been left sitting outside so when she got it all the original wood parts were falling apart or gone. My son-in-law made a nice side table from the base and the sewing machine has been sitting for a while. She didn't have anything special in mind but I couldn't resist the opportunity to upgrade the design a little bit. I had planed some walnut down a year or so a back and that just seemed like the perfect material for this project. I originally was thinking I'd do thru dovetails but I thought the blind dovetails would look better with the rounded corners. Everything else is pretty straight forward. I did cheat a little on the joinery for the top. I was going to use mortise and tenons but I decided to use the Kreg jig to speed the process up a bit. I have a good bit of sanding to do and I need to make an insert and a lid for the cubby and finish it off. By the way, she is pretty happy with what she has seen so far.
