Singer Cast Treadle Sewing Machine Base. With 1790 Coastal Maine Barn Board Top.
This piece, in a way took just about a year to complete as we were waiting to acquire the right piece of wood for the top. It is a board from a barn that.
Was built in Woolwich, Maine 231 years ago and was taken down this spring. The table width matches that of the. Original cabinet and amazingly enough the top is the same depth as the bottom at the wheels with no cutting. Top to bottom: The board has been lightly sanded and has had a Polyurethane applied to the top. It is not perfect but most likely it never was.
It is heavily weathered on the underside and there. Are some small holes, one at a knot and a couple from nails on one side.
The top was cut from an 8 foot. Board, is in one piece and is securely attached to the base using the original screws.
Iron parts retain their original black paint. The gold parts were gone over again and the whole.
Unit was clear coated to bring out the details and give it a nice shine. Very little corrosion to be found and the treadle "pedal" and wheel operate smoothly and.
The wheels all look to be in good shape and turn freely. Screws and nuts securing them as opposed to the cotter pin typ e pieces used on. Overall the project came out excellent and the table is very solid with. No issues and looks nice from all angles. The top is attached to the base.Please see the pictures for further details.
