New Sewing table top

I have been wanting to do something with my sewing table so that my sewing machine would be level with the table. I have seen many new tables that I would love to own but my current table is attatched to the wall and it still works fine. I thought about cutting a hole in the table and lowering my machine but I felt that it would then be too low. I then thought about buying the table that Janome has designed for my machine. But then I would cut down too much room in my sewing nook. But I like to have my machine to the front of my table. So that didnt work either. So I designed a table top that would just sit straight ontop of my current table that was shaped to go around my machine. I took this to a cabinet making business and for $170 they made me exactly what I wanted. Loads cheaper than the tables I was looking at. So check it out............

Very nice! It will make a world of difference in your comfort, and finished projects. I just converted a Featherweight table into a set-in table for my Janome 9000. I love it. Sharyn/KalamaQuilts
