The sewing machine pushes down into the cabinet using a German-made airlift allowing the top to be closed. When the doors are closed this unit appears to be a sideboard or chest to fit into your decor.
The standard sewing machine airlift is rated for up to 50 lbs. This lift will accommodate machines up to 14-1/2" tall.
If you have or have future plans for a next-generation sewing machine such as the Bernina 7 series requiring at least 15” space or up to 60 lbs., you will need to upgrade to the extra tall heavy-duty lift. The extra-tall lift will handle machines up to 16-1/2” tall.
Both lifts allow adjustable levels for both tabletop and flatbed sewing. The distance that the lift travels down into the cabinet is also adjustable for a shorter machine now and a taller machine down the road.
Standard kneehole is 20" and will accommodate most standard size machines in the 14"-18" width range. If you have a larger embroidery machine this cabinet will need to be stretched or have the drawers cut down in width. Normal drawer width is 10-1/2" reducing the width 2" still leaves a nice drawer without having to lengthen the cabinet. This is just for the base of the machine to fit down into the cabinet. Removable embroidery arms used after the machine is up at tabletop height does not need to be considered in measuring the base width. There is an upcharge for this modification.
Select Larger Machine Modifications to select a larger kneehole with or without the taller lift option.
The cabinet is built with a standard raised door to match the open drawer fronts.
The cabinet is equipped with quality hardware with self-close drawers and double knuckle hinges on top so the fabric will not snag. Rolling floor casters are standard.
The sewing machine template is also included and will be cut to fit your specific sewing machine so it will fit flush with the work area. No worry if you ever want to upgrade to a new machine a new template may be cut and sent without having to alter the cabinet top.
You may choose between several door options. The arched raised panel (pictured) is standard. If you wish to select a different style such as standard raised panel, shaker style, or mission style, select these options in the drop-down boxes. The Mission and shaker option will be an upcharge. (Pictured Left to Right, Arch Top Style, Mission Style, Shaker Style, Standard Raised Panel Style).
Cabinets are built one at a time with each order making it easy to customize or reconfigure to your needs, just drop us an e-mail with your custom request. A simple change such as reversing the drawers to accommodate a left-hand person can usually be accomplished for around $150

Amish sewing machine cabinet will generally take 6-8 weeks to build and ship. These small Amish shops do at times become overloaded with seasonal orders. Overall, the years that we have been selling these cabinets we have had four cabinets from this builder that went much longer to build and ship. Each cabinet is handcrafted for quality and not mass production speed. Call us if you would like to know the current build time.
You may pick the cabinet up in Northern Indiana; select F.O.B. for no shipping charge.
We utilize insured professional blanket wrap Amish furniture haulers that cover 95% of the Continental US with inside delivery for only $400. The exception might be a remote location at the extreme tip of let’s say a state like Michigan, Main, Florida, or some other location that is difficult to maneuver into for a delivery.
These companies make monthly runs with scheduled pickup dates. We coordinate with the cabinet builders around these pickup dates to ship your cabinet as soon as it’s completed and can be picked up by the hauling company.
Select F.O.B if you live close to Northern Indian and would like to pick the cabinet up at the Amish shop.

- We love our beautiful new oak furniture!
- I just received my oak sewing machine cabinet and am extremely pleased with the quality of the workmanship and how smoothly everything works - the slide-out thread case, the drawers, and especially the machine lift. We wanted a beautiful piece of furniture, not an ordinary utility sewing table, and that is exactly what we got! I received personal guidance during the ordering process so I could get just the cabinet I wanted, made especially for me, and I agree that the shipping service did a great job of protecting our beautiful cabinet during its trip to California. It fits in beautifully with other custom Amish furniture we have had built for our home.
