I wouldn't use yard sticks. maybe a butcher block top, but I love the old sewing machine base! An antique Singer treadle sewing machine base finds new life as a table with the addition of vintage yardsticks nailed to an oak top.
Singer sewing machine stand as a base for dessert display. Old singer sewing machine turned into a dreamy makeup vanity. Sewing machine cabinets into a new desk. Turned an old sewing machine into a lovely vintage furniture.
