An inexpensive Sailrite LSZ-1 sewing machine cart is finished

Posted By on October 7, 2020

SewingCartSailriteLSZ1_200927The Sailrite LSZ-1 sewing machine cart is complete and turned out great. Everything worked as planned (a rarity for me) and didn’t have to purchase anything new.

SewingCartSailriteCase200927The wider oak material was sitting in my stock shelf, the edge banding for the fold out table stripped from the glass top of my recently disassembled printing flats storage (type galley trays case) and the 1/2” plywood leftover from my crosscut sled. As for hardware, the brackets from the laundry room upgrade (didn’t use), the brass screws from Katelyn and Drew’s cherry “wedding wagon” project and durable white floor/shelf paint from the steps and mudroom update.


Although I had been planning to turn the red workshop cart from my dad into a sewing workstation for a while now, the inspiration to get it done came from the Mythbusters special effects expert, Adam Savage (his YouTube channel is addictive). Thanks!
