Default Sewing Machine desk

Since I bought a new sewing machine for Sandra this last Christmas. I just finished a sewing cabinet for her.
I needed to get it dome in time for her birthday which is the 24th of June.
Here are some pictures of the finished product.
She has not been able to go out in my shop for the last 3 weeks while I was building it.
I don't think she really wants to go out there this time of year, since I am just like Rick,
I have no insulation and it is very hot out there.
I have been getting an early start and an early quitting time while building this thing.

Here are the pictures.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

Wow, that is clever with the hinged top, haven't seen a design like that before. good job,I like the colors and the drawers match the sewing machine color. The drawer units pivoting on the cabinet doors is a clever idea too. You did a lot of work on that, good job too.

Like the pictures too.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
