Has anyone ever seen something like this? I am getting set up to see
this. The current owner says it is about coffee-table high, and will
be sending me the full dimensions later today.

Ain't it cool looking?

That is very cool.  It surely is from a different era.  That is the style of
stuff we grew up
with but I never have seen a piece like that.  Would be a fun piece to
own/use. Probably
was well made of real wood.  It sure is tough to find real wood or anything
not made in
the orient.

Re: Not OT: Sewing table
It is 13.5" high, 18.5" at the top of the end where the drawer is.
Length is 45", width is 17"

I am not sure where I would/will put it. Going to go see it Fri night.
Wonder if some sturdy PVC would raise it up [like we do for cutting
tables]
At the very least it is worth a look!

Interesting...I actually used to have a coffee table that looked like
that!  Can't quite figure out how you'd use it for sewing....would you
sit on the floor...?  Looking forward to the report.....

An aunt had a similar table many years ago and it was  a side table for her
easy chair to hold items for hand sewing or knitting.    I'm thinking that
she kept a lamp on the table help her see better in the evenings.

Re: Not OT: Sewing table
I believe that it is a kind of cobbler's bench..I have one that my
great grandfather used..its a bit different style, but has the spot
where you sit and the cubbyholes for tools and supplies..

my grand mother had one similar to it...she used it for a telephone
table/gossip bench. the drawer held phone books and the phone went on
the
shelf, the little "dips" were to hold her espresso cups!
it's really adorable....snap it up! rock maple furniture is hard to
come by these days in good condition.

Re: Not OT: Sewing table
Well, I did not get it. At 4' long, it really is too big for the space
I have for it. It was pretty neat, and I shared the info you all had
posted, with the gal. They got it in a storage locker sale. I did come
home with a rock maple end table, for a song, that is perfect for a
pot I have.
