Default Sewing Machine Carry Case

My wife is a quilter and it is common for the ladies to use old portable sewing machines when they get together. Unfortunately the original cases are typically in poor shape so here is a solution to the problem. The box is from pallet wood which I believe is ash. Finished with Watco Danish Oil.

My wife was a quilter and transported her machines all the time. These are really nice cases.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Love pallet wood. It's always popular wood, not ash.
Nice job on the case.

Usually poplar? Then I may have to rethink my position on pallet wood. Thanks.

It seems I never finish what I

It just might be popular, but if you don't ash, you'll never know for sure.
