Sewing Table

Submitted by deschudon on Tue, 04/23/2013 - 07:34

We did it in MDF as suggested, used piano hinges, and changed the height to 36" because I'm used to work at counter height and wanted a larger surface, plus I don't mind sewing sitting on my stool. We had the store cut all the pieces, but this table is very heavy using this material. We also made the legs at 4" considering the weight. The only disadvantage of making it 36" high is that the legs will stick out once folded, unless you have the room and adjust the depth at 36" as well. I overlooked that detail but in the end, I don't mind since this table is stored away out of the view when not used. It did soak up a lot of paint... Already used it and it's great to have my space ready to use roll away, not having to clear the counter or dining table to work.

Do you happen to have the new measurement layout for what you did????!!
I was trying to work it out, but math isn't my strongest suit!
Also-- did you consider making it wider so the legs wouldn't stick out??
(I am planning for plywood instead of mdf)
thanks!
