Spalted Maple Sewing Machine Cabinet Redo

                       My wife bought a broken down old sewing machine base years ago.

 It had been left out in the weather and nothing was going to be able to bring it back to life.

 We discussed a plan for the lovely cast iron base and out came the spalted maple.
The black lines in the maple play well with the black base.

                                                  A little iron wood detail on the corners.

                                                    A salvaged drop pull for the drawer.

A new life for an old falling apart sewing machine base. Very handy next to the door in the kitchen.

School Desk

                                        Another commission: a Victorian child's school desk.

                      I started with the cast iron pieces and not much else to guide the project.

                                                       Turned out well. Happy customer.
