Introduction: Antique Sewing Machine Frame Chair
I wanted something different from the common frame table.
Step 1: Starting With Frame
I was given a sewing machine frame,and didn’t want to make a table. It seems everyone makes tables with them.
Step 2: Remove the Unneeded Parts.
The tub and spindle wheel was removed, I left the pedal base for support. After I spray painted the frame two coats of gloss black.
Step 3: Installing the Seat
I cut two 1 x 12 inch strips and mounted them to the insides the frame legs to hold the seat along the back and width of the frame I cut 1x 18 strip. For the seat I cut 2 “ x12”x 18 pine and mounted it to the strips.
Step 4: Fitting the Back and Arms.
I cut 2) pine boards 1 x 3 x 14 strips for the arm rest and added a notch for the back rest board I rounded the front end of the arms with my jigsaw and sanded them afterwords. I used the screw holes in the frame to attach the arms by screwing them from the bottom up. For the back rest I cut 3) 1 x 6 x18
boards I gave the back rest about a 15 % lean. On the back of the back rest I add two 1x 18 strips to help support the back rest. Working from under the seat I screwed the seat to the back rest. The top strip I added to the back side of the back rest with finished nails from front to back and nailed the arm rest from the sides.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
After stain and clear coat the end result was something new and different.
