Hello fine people I have found a old Singer treadle base for my sewing machine.
It seams that two of my daughters are growing up and moving on. That has freed up two bedrooms. One will become a sewing room for my wife. She has all of her stuff, I have received my mothers sewing gear and now have the floor space to set my machine.
Now It has been HOT here. Summer is here and the dog days of August are about!
The base was bought with a glass top. I needed to make a simple oak top for it. The hard part is repeating the hole the sewing machine sets in.
Using the hand crank base as a template I am almost there.
It will be very nice to have both of my hands to guide the leather trough the machine.
In the video you will see my method for making a table top. Machines will be used for this project. I have little time and its really to hot to be planing for hours.
As always thank you for your time. I will get more out as soon as time allows. Real life problems are keeping me busy. There is nothing more I would like to do than get out in the shop and build projects. Please comment and come again.
