This is a custom-made cabinet that can be redesigned for other customers. It’s a bit different than the traditional Amish cabinets we offer. Still Amish built using all solid wood construction. Click Here to see all our Amish sewing cabinets.
Optional drop leaf across the back can be purchased in a 15” or 18” width by using the drop-down box at the top of the page. The leaf will extend the 43” length of the main cabinet, not including the fold-up leaves on each end.
The cabinet is priced in oak and optional cherry as pictured. Select cherry using the drop-down box at the top of the page to see price addition. E-mail us for other wood options.
Cabinet tops, fronts, and drawer fronts are built from solid hardwoods. Cabinet sides, inside the kneehole, and on the back are built using cabinet-grade veneer plywood. No particle board or pressed fiberboard is ever used in Amish cabinets.
All drawers feature old-world quality dovetail joinery not often found in furniture being built today.
The cabinet comes with an easy-lift sewing machine shelf. The cabinet has a pullout wall for thread and bobbins and four drawers. Amish builder uses only quality hardware with self-close drawers, and double knuckle hinges on top so the fabric will not snag.
The sewing machine pushes down into the cabinet using a German-made airlift allowing an insert to be placed on the top to be closed.
The standard sewing machine airlift is rated for up to 50 lbs. This lift will accommodate machines up to 14-1/2" tall.
If you have or have future plans for a next-generation sewing machine such as the Bernina 7 series requiring at least 15” space or up to 60 lbs., you will need to upgrade to the extra tall heavy-duty lift. The extra-tall lift will handle machines up to 16-1/2” tall.
Both lifts allow adjustable levels for both tabletop and flatbed sewing. The distance that the lift travels down into the cabinet is also adjustable for a shorter machine now and a taller machine down the road.
Select Larger Machine Modifications to select a larger kneehole with or without the taller lift option.
The cabinet is built with a standard raised door to match the open drawer fronts.
This cabinet is also equipped with cord grommets to feed the main power strip cord through the side of the cabinet and then a desk grommet in the top to drop the machine cords out of view from the front of the cabinet.
Unless specifically requested, the cord grommets will be added even with a treadle option so that an electric machine can be used.
We will need to know which side of the cabinet you wish the cord to exit. Please note using the drop-down box at the bottom of the page.
The template will be cut to fit your specific sewing machine so it will fit flush with the work area.
No worry if you ever want to upgrade to a new machine a new template can be cut and sent without having to alter the cabinet top.
This cabinet will have a solid wood insert to go in place of the template when the machine is lowered.
Cabinets are built one at a time with each order making it easy to customize or reconfigure to your needs. Just drop us an e-mail with your custom request. A simple change such as reversing the drawers to accommodate a left-hand person can usually be accomplished at minimal additional cost.
Customers tell us that we are already very competitive with other stores selling Amish sewing machine cabinets, but when they start looking at what we include as standard on ours and what the others call options, Cottage Craft Works pricing for these wonderful heirloom quality cabinets just can't be beaten. We include the spool drawer, the sewing machine template to fit your machine, and we include the rollers.

You should expect 3 to 6 months for your custom cabinet to be built and shipped. Since the pandemic and the uncertainty of the economy, there has been an overwhelming renewed interest and demand for home-based products. Our Amish builders are also facing the same levels of supply chain and labor shortages as other industries. Each cabinet is handcrafted for quality and not mass production speed.
We utilize insured professional blanket wrap Amish furniture haulers that cover 95% of the Continental US with inside delivery for only $400. The exception might be a remote location at the extreme tip of a state like Michigan, Main, Florida, or some other location that is difficult to maneuver into for a delivery.
These companies make monthly runs with scheduled pickup dates. We coordinate with the cabinet builders around these pickup dates to ship your cabinet as soon as it’s completed and can be picked up by the hauling company.
Select F.O.B if you live close to Northern Indiana and would like to pick the cabinet up at the Amish shop.
Select a $400 shipping deposit for in-home delivery. We will notify you should there be an issue with delivery to your location before we process the order.
