I have an old shelf which I made 2 years ago. That was my 2nd wood project. Later I modified to use with sewing machine. But it did not workout properly because there is no proper table top (Stitching platform). In this instructable I am going to show how I made table top so that we can sew easily and comfortably just like traditonal mechanical sewing machine.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- 12mm MDF
- PVC vinyl sheet
- Wood glue
- PVC glue
- Masking tape
- Wood screws
- Edge band
Step 2: Making Table Top
I cut the MDF to the desired length, and traced the sewing machine. Using jigsaw I cut the marked region.
Step 3: Table Top Height
Sewing machine height is exactly 7 cm. I cut 5.8 cm width wood strips(MDF width is 12 mm), glued and screw fitted to the shelf.
Step 4: PVC Vinyl
I attached the PVC vinyl sheet and edge band with pvc glue and secured with masking tape for 24 hrs.
Step 5: Sewing Machine Height Adjustment
After inserting the sewing machine there a slight gap between the machine and table top. I covered the gap by gluing old plastic ruler at the bottom.
Step 6: Final Step
I have not changed the interior but painted with black.
