Sewing Table, Part II

A reader asked me to post more pictures of the sewing table I blogged about last year. Here they are:

The first picture is a topside view of the two hinges that hold the machine to the table. The machine is stowed, so the pieces that attache to the sewing machine are pointing down.

Below is an image of the stowed sewing machine from underneath. It is resting only slightly on the frame of the drawer. The drawer pulls out freely regardless of the position of the sewing machine. 

I was unable to get a really good image of the underside of the sewing machine while the machine was stowed. But this picture does show the leg that rests against the back of the storage table while the machine is stowed. The leg keeps the innerworkings of the sewing machine from resting on the back of the cabinet.

The last two images are from underneath with the sewing machine pivoted out and all the way back, resting against the wall. This enabled me to get a better shot of the hinges from underneath. Those two hinges are all that attach the sewing machine to the cabinet, but they're pretty darn sturdy. My machine has been in the cabinet and used often for about 2 years now. The second picture is the same view, but closer.

She went from person to person
placing orders. Other people came to fill them
while she juggled I-wonder-how-many-people's
expectations of service and care.

If I were in a restaurant,
my order would be free after such a wait.
But this is the ER, payment comes up front
where I'm neither the product,
nor treated as the customer,
though I was well within my rights to say
No thank you, send the meds back.
How was she to know I prefer the waning pain
to a shot in the a**?
