Available in dark stained cherry as pictured at the top standard. You may also select medium cherry or natural cherry; these selections may take an additional two weeks to build.
See examples of the medium and dark cherry by clicking on the detail labeled pictures of the cabinet. Note: The cabinet pictures taken in front of the log cabin is the dark cherry that was taken outdoors. Our camera shows the stain to look lighter and more reddish than it looks inside.
Note: Instead of the original cast iron legs this cabinet has wooden legs to hold the treadle.
Don't like the knobs? No problem, you can easily remove and replace them with different ones.
The reproduction cabinet top, the front, and legs are all made of solid premium hardwoods. We have upgraded the legs with a new open design as shown in some of the pictures.
Most all the original sewing cabinets used veneer on the top and the drawer fronts. This is one of the common problems with trying to restore an old cabinet, especially when the veneer separates.
Features 3 drawers on each side 12-/12 long x 3-1/2 wide x 3-1/4 deep with a tilt tray in the middle.
The machine folds away just like the old time Singer Sewing Machine cabinet. Simply lift the machine fold back the hinged front board and lower the machine into the storage position.
This cabinet does not have the problematic cable lift system that was used in some of the older cabinets.
Ships UPS in two boxes, some assembly required. Please expect 3-4 weeks shipping on these very popular cabinets.
The legs, treadle and then the cabinet are shipped in separate boxes with holes predrilled for assembly. The legs have threaded "T" Nuts already installed inside the cabinet to easily line up the bolts. Boxes measure 38 x 20 x 20 and 20 x 14-1/2 x 6. Occasionally the pilot holes for the treadle wheel will vary and may require a new pilot hole on one side to be drilled during the final assembly.
Overall cabinet measurements are 35-1/2 wide (closed) 47-3/4 wide (open) 17-1/2 deep 29-3/4 high lid size 14-3/4 x 20-1/2. The treadle is 26 x 16.
Cabinet comes with the head hinges to attach the machine to the cabinet. These are the round metal hinges with the pegs to slide into the back of the machine base.
You may also select a universal rubber belt or a leather belt to add to the cabinet when it is shipped.
Add the Janome flatbed model #712T and make it a complete cabinet with the sewing machine. Select this option using the drop down boxes.
Before ordering this cabinet for an older Singer Machine please be sure to measure the base of your 15 Class sewing machine. Because Singer made the Class 15 machine over such a long period of time and there were so many clones made of it. We cannot verify that all Class 15 bases will fit this cabinet. Some of the oldest 15 Class machines did not have a straight edge base. Customer will be responsible for return shipping cost.
Your old Singer machine base will need to measure 14-5/8" long and 7" wide. Also from the left end of the base to the outside of the wheel will need to be no more than 16-1/4" in order to clear the cabinet edge as the machine is being folded. This may also be a factor on some of the electric conversion machines as well.
What are customers are saying:
Tammy and I want to thank you for going out of your way to get our sewing machine to us so quickly. Tammy is very pleased with the quality of the cabinet! The fit and finish is top notch. I did have to file a small corner of wood away so that the sewing machine would fold underneath the table properly, but that corner is out of sight so no one will ever know.
The iron work for the treadle is exceptional, and everything fit exactly where it should have. The unit is very well built and will easily last several lifetimes!
S and T
All I can say is that the workmanship on the cabinet is beautiful – outstanding and worth every penny. I must tell you - after the cabinet came ………..you have no idea how impressed I was – the photos online were great – but seeing the real thing – having the cabinet here ………..I feel the photos do not do it justice. The wood is sanded so beautifully and smooth and the corners rounded perfectly. It really is beautiful – a work of art.
