My wonderful son-in-law came yesterday and very patiently installed  
the new bench exactly as I wanted it done.  Here is a preview of the  
finished project:

I will add before-and-after as well as progress pictures to my web  
site soon, but right now I just want to go sew!

Very, very nice!  I know you are tickled pink and I hope you have
an office chair on wheels so you can just zip down the line from
machine to machine.

I am!  And a good thing is, that there were two huge cardboard boxes  
of really, Really, REALLY old stash down at the end of the original  
table, and getting ready for this project I cleared them out.  Some  
I will to donate to Goodwill, some to the Senior Center, the rest to  
the landfill.  I also made some decisions about some Unfinished  
Projects.

I do, here is my DSIL using it as he was working:

I have two wheeled chairs in that room. I can also whip from sewing  
machine to supply cabinet without having to walk. ;-D

That's a real dream project. What a great SIL. Enjoy every minute using you
 wonderful new work area.
You mention UFO'S. I pulled out a table runner I started at leas 7 or 8 yea
rs ago, plled out a million stitches and edge stitched. Not happy with my s
titching, so tomorrow I will make a run down to JOANNs and get  some black  
bias tape and finish it off with that. I put to much work into before this  
to leave it sit in a box.

Several of my UFOs will be dismatled and the fabric donated, the  
projects no longer fit my style.

A few are going to be offered to my DDs, in case they really want  
Welsh double-cloth wool https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_cloth
(teal and olive YIKES!) for a reversible jacket.  <grin>  I bought  
the fabric in Victoria BC. many years ago, never got aroundtoit.

I also pulled out a white eyelet 'New Look' dress I made for myself  
in about 1960... bust 35", waist 22"...    :-}  The fabric is  
perfect, it will make someone a nice bassinette cover... or  
something.

Luckily, I also came across the "Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt  
top  
http://www.patternsfromhistory.com/colonial_revival/flower_garden.htm ,  
pieced by DH's grandmother, given to her DDIL, then given to me by  
my DMIL, never quilted.  My DDs and DGC are interested in having it  
finished, so I will be researching local quilting circles.
