Way back in the spring when I was looking for a cabinet to house the Singer 15-91 that I purchased on e-bay, we came across this cabinet.
At first, we thought it was another 15-91 but upon checking the serial number, we discovered it was instead, a 201-2. The cabinet wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but we decided to buy it and refurbish the sewing machine and refinish the cabinet to give to our middle daughter.
Dave cleaned, oiled, lubricated and completely rewired the sewing machine.
And then he refinished the cabinet, replacing the veneer on the top and underside of both fold out panels.
He knew it would be almost impossible to exactly match the stain on the original, so he chose to use a walnut veneer and stain that to match the darker swirls on the front fold out drawer of the cabinet.
As this was such a large gift and her birthday is in the beginning of December, it became a combination birthday/Christmas gift.
I can’t find the photos we took of the refurbished sewing machine in it’s refinished cabinet with matching reupholstered stool… but please take my word for it that it turned out beautifully.
Our middle daughter travels quite often as part of her job, so for her second gift, I made her a travel set too.
Her third gift was a set of two Christmas elves.
Her stocking was filled with oil paint brushes, an inflatable bath pillow and other goodies.
