Counter is up for art, down for sewing.

Hinged panels in the middle of her work station lets Jeanne Phillips be both seamstress and artist. In the 106- by 30-inch counter, a 36-inch-wide panel lifts up to rest on an 8-inch-high support. With the panel up, she draws and paints; with it flat, she sews. Round bolts in the back of the handle protrude slightly to stop the tp panel against the rear support.

Designed by Seattle architect Stuart Silk, the built-in station is made of 3/4-inch plywood with white oak drawer faces and top. A satin polyurethane finish makes the work surface easy to clean.
