Thank you all for all your kind words, it encourages me more to renovate other things, what i am dreaming about at this moment is renovating one of those very old turn table with that large copper cone, those very classic old turn tables... so if some one has one of those and does not want it for some reason then please allow me to renovate it... :)

I am also willing to give ideas and help others with ideas from all the experience i got through renovating this singer sewing machine...

Hi, your woodworking skills are amazing, was the original wood rotten. Would love one of these old tables for singer sewing machine. I have the machine but not the table. Well done.

thank you all for your nice words, very appreciated...
The original wooden table was in very bad conditon, the wood was rotten and you just feel like you want to scratch your self whenever you touch it, alot of small bugs living there :D...! at first i wanted to keep th eoriginal wood but as it was in very bad condition so i decided to get rid of original wood and start from scratch, the new wood is of great heavy quality and sometimes many jegsaw blades broke while cutting the wood for how hard the new wood is...! but after all its worth it.
