Craftsmanship at its finest, the 168 cabinet offers real wood and the features you are looking for in an Amish-made heirloom quality sewing cabinet. Completely closed it shows its beauty as a piece of sewing furniture that can double as a side table in a dining room or bedroom.
Flat Ridge Furniture has designed this sewing cabinet with the embroidery machine in mind. There is a place special for storing away your module and a narrow drawer for hoops.
The 168 Sewing Cabinet has a breadboard that pulls out on the left. When a specially designed shelf is put on top of the breadboard, the tabletop becomes even roomier with an "L" shape removable shelf. This is wonderful for cutting and pinning your sewing projects.
Numerous characteristics in the workmanship make this sewing cabinet stand out.
Full Extension drawers also have dovetail details that give strength to the corners of your drawers. With a total of 4 drawers including the module drawer, you can enjoy organizing your sewing supplies.
The doors have magnets inset into the wood to help the doors close properly. When the doors swing back against the cabinet, the magnets help them to stay put - out of your way to sit and sew.
Solid wood is used on the top, front, and sides. The Back of the cabinet and the bottom are made of plywood. There is no veneer used at all.
As a small wood shop, attention to detail is their expertise at Flat Ridge Furniture. This keeps the quality of your sewing cabinet high. Utilizing their materials, waste is very minimal at this small shop even the drop-offs are burnt to provide heat in the shop. Efficiency is considered every step of the way by doing more at a time when it is possible.
The 168 has a thread pull-out to help you with organizing all your beautiful thread collections. There are 5 rows of shelves to keep the threads within easy reach.
The sewing cabinet sits on soft-tread casters making it easy to move it around in your room. Locking casters are not necessary with such a solidly built cabinet - the weight keeps your cabinet in place unless you push it.
A wooden insert comes with this cabinet so that you can have a flat surface on top of the cabinet when your sewing machine is stored away.
A 28" kneehole gives you ample room to move in and out of your cabinet to sew.
There is an optional 14" drop leaf for the full length of the base cabinet (not the flip-out extensions). This is supported by two wood corners under the drop leaf.
Be sure to measure your sewing machine to know if it fits in the sewing machine hole. In order for the acrylic insert to fit well, you need 2 extra inches around your sewing machine.
This custom-made cabinet takes about 18 weeks to be made for you.
You are Responsible to check the Sewing Machine Hole Size
Be sure to measure your sewing machine with all attachments removed. For the best fit, allow 2 extra inches around your machine for the insert to fit well. The extra 2" also allows room for your machine to raise and lower freely with the lift and the sewing machine cords.
The standard sewing machine opening size can be found in the specifications.
The price is for Brown Soft Maple or Red Oak.
Rustic Hickory, Regular Cherry, Hard Maple, and Quarter Sawn White Oak are also available. With the prices of wood being so volatile we need to ask for a quote on them before ordering.
Sew Steady Cabinet Insets & Inserts are designed to fit your specific make and model of sewing machine and cabinet and fill gaps around your sewing area*, allowing you to work more efficiently and comfortably. They are made with one of the highest grades of acrylic.
All the inserts are designed based on having the accessory tray removed from the machine. The insert is designed to be perfectly level with the free arm of the machine. If you have a top-loading bobbin this may affect your use.
Occasionally those that are custom cutting the insert will have additional questions about your sewing machine, or the hole that they are fitting, and you will be asked more questions.
The Heavy Duty Tall lift is German-made. It is a pneumatic lift that is operated by pushing down a little (1/4" to 1/2") to release its current position. Once it is released, you can let it rise or push further down to lower your sewing machine. The lift has a 48-pound weight lift and a tall 15" height clearance.
There are three stopping spots that are adjustable for your machine.
- The highest is the free arm position
- Flatbed sewing is the middle position that is level with your sewing table. In this position, you will use an acrylic insert around your sewing machine.
- The lowest position is for storing your sewing machine away.
