One of the things I do in 'off season' when its too cold to work in my Boulder, Colorado garage is go looking in antique, thrift, and Salvation Army shops for interesting bases. Some time ago I colleted four antique cast iron sewing machines. These were one of the early consumer products that every home had to have and lots of companies rushed to fill the need. I found bases made for Singer, Sears, White, and New Companion.
I've made and sold tables using the Sears and White bases pictured here. The tops are removeable, which makes moving them arround a lot easier.
I really don't want to repeat the top design I put on the Sears and White bases. I can if you want, but I think it would be fun to incorporate one of the many spectacular foucs stones I've also collected or even 'cut outs' of Kokapelli, A Hopi hand symbol, a Colorado Buffalo, or ???? into the design.
