And because I have been The Parent, I haven't had time to do much work on the Burda dress, which is about halfway cut out. I'll try to finish it up on Monday when DH is back home and I
Anyway, Phyllis suggested I show off my sewing table. DH built it for me, and I love it! It was super easy to make. The top is a 4'X 8' sheet of melamine coated particle board. DH bought lengths of stripping and nailed them to the sides. Then he used a roundover bit on his router to smooth the edges. After that, he applied some filler compound to smooth out a couple of places where the melamine had chips (melamine is notorious for that, I guess). The legs are simply telescoping table legs and frames from Ikea. The whole thing took him just a couple of hours to make, and it is a perfect size and height. I don't have to bend over to cut things. At the Stitch 'n Bitch, we were all able to work at it comfortably. I love it! Here are some shots of the underside and the legs.
Now I have a table that suits me perfectly. Woo hoo!
