Sometime last fall the blacksmith started making a sewing table for me. He forged all the legs and other metal parts. It was then that his helper (not me, his bff) had back surgery and couldn't assist him. The legs sat for a while.
Then the blacksmith called a friend, Tim about a wood working tool. Long story short, Tim gave him red oak lumber milled from his property for the table top. Tim's tree farm is just about 4 miles from us as a crow flies.
The wood was cut, glued up, and clamped. It then sat for a week with the stain on it, while we went visiting in Oklahoma.
Within a half hour of arriving home from Oklahoma, the first coat of polyurethane went on. He applied two more coats over the next few days.
Voila'! Here is the finished product. It measures 5 feet 6 inches long and 22 inches wide.
It is positioned beside my "regular" sewing machine. It easily holds 3 machines.
Here is my 1953 Elna and my Bernina Deco embroidery machine.
I love my table! I also love my Blacksmith for making me the table!!
I just couldn't resist snapping a picture of him sewing his work gloves.
