Small foot rest!

   I hinted that Sir Old Man was working on a couple of small things for the sewing room.  I have been asking for a nicer foot rest to go under the sewing machine / and the quilting machine. 
   Up to this time I have been using an upside down  soft drink case  as a foot rest.  Ergonomically, it keeps my legs at a 90 degree angle while sewing. 
 
   While he was at it, he re-worked the foot pedal rest and made it fit a bit tighter.  No sliding around now of the pedal while I am sewing.  There is also one of these in the works for under the Tiara quilting machine :)


 Made of Baltic Birch plywood with a natural finish.  The bottom support has a shaped curved edge so it can rock back and forth  :)    It sits at a slight angle that is comfortable.  He added grooves across the top to provide some texture to kept my foot from slipping.    The size is 10'' by 12'' and about 3 1/2'' high. 

 









   I love the improvement in looks compared to the old soda crate.  And it functions great!


   I have errands to run this morning.....so I hope to visit the sewing room later today and put it all to use. 
Happy stitching.

Well, you know how much I love woodworking & homemade wooden items so you had to know that I would love those foot rests! They are totally awesome & I even see counter sunk screws so you won't nag a sock on them. ;) The curved edge was a brilliant idea.

These are brilliant! I'll be showing hubby and see if he can come up with something similar. It looks like we have the same sewing machine table, so thanks for providing the dimensions too.

Oh, you have such a clever, and industrious hubby! What a wonderful adaptation to make sewing a little easier on you. And it is beautiful, too!

Very nice! Gotta love our very handy hubbies. Mine just finished the special sewing machine table that fits perfectly between the wall and the bed in my studio. :)

Hubby to the rescue! (Aw, he's showing thanks for all that care during his eye procedures!)
