Singer Tables, Cabinets and Cases

Since the beginning of sewing machines they have been mounted in a variety of wooden tables and cabinets, or into portable cases. This page is a guide to some of the Singer woodwork that has been produced over the years.

When the first Singer Model A was introduced, its packing case doubled as a table upon which it was mounted. Most early full size machines were normally operated by treadle mechanisms. The machines were therefore set on wooden tables mounted onto cast iron treadle stands or into cabinets which included the treadle. Later as smaller 3/4 size machines were introduced powered by hand cranks, they were mounted in portable cases.

To distinguish between the variety of table or cabinet styles, and also the different wood finishes available, a 5 letter Ref Code was introduced. Where known, these codes are shown after the type of wood in the table below.

For information regarding treadle stands, please CLICK HERE.

The list of tables and cabinets on this page is by no means complete. If you have any information or images about Singer woodwork that can be added, then we would love to hear from you.
