Here is a little project I did two days ago. I need a sewing cabinet and what I want cost bucks so in the meantime>>>>> I found this cabinet, it even came with a storage stool. I measured inside the cavity and cut and screwed a nice piece of strong plywood in there and my Janome fit right in.

You can see a little space in the back, but that doesn't bother anything. See how nice it looks?

Since my machine's storage box opens in the front, this flap in the front worked out just right. I had to trim of about an inch. When I want to access the box, I just flip it up.

Here you see a space on the right side too but that also doesn't bother anything and my cords fit in there just nice too.

I had to cut an inch off the legs as I'm short and we are doing a custom job here now lol. I also had to cut a large curve out of the front, since cutting off the legs lowered the front panel to my legs...but I fixed that.

Here is a view accessing the storage area. Just flip up and then down ahahah...I'm so smart.

All this cost me a mere 10.00 bucks, so for now it will do. I can also butt this up to a larger table when I'm working on a larger piece. I kinda like my invention. I might build a side left piece or find a perfect cabinet and cut the legs down to suit me. I did a rough job but it's fine for now. I might refine it or not and oh all stuff in the back is my folk art that I do now and then.....
