Floating sewing and hobby corner

The wife needed a place for her hobbies.
First I measured the depth of the working surface of her sewing machine so I could cut a whole in the desk and it fit in flush. All other dimensions and drawers had to be built off that sewing machine.
She is happy so I am happy

  • Nice. Do you have plans for this? My wife wants something similar.

  • NMSSmith: I built this with no plans but I can make something up for you. Give me a day or two to get a tape measure on it. Thanks for the vote!

  • This is beautiful. I am planning on doing something similar for my wife in the laundry room.

  • Mayorsoto: Thank you for the comment and the vote! The only complaint the wife has about it is that I put the sewing machine in the corner. For small projects it works great but when she is putting together larger materials it bunches up going into the corner wall. If I do it again I would put the machine on the right side and maybe put a fold down counter to match the surface to extend her feeding area. Live and learn. She is still very happy with it. -cheers-
