I wasn't sure where to put this, but here seemed reasonable, since it's sort of about sewing machines.

I snagged a nice sewing cabinet with drawers from freecycle last weekend. It's a desk style (with no fold-down on the left) with drawers, and hinges in the back. The problem is that my machine only just fits. That is, the base of the machine is *almost* smaller than the hole. Frankly, I'm afraid if I run it at any speed, it'll vibrate off the hinge pins and end up in my lap-or on my foot. The hole is also 3" or so too long, but I can live with that; it's a handy place to drop the cords. My big concern is the width.

Is there a way to modify the top to fit? Even adding a half inch would be helpful. I have no equipment for major carpentry, but can handle minor stuff if someone's got a workaround. I'd really like to save this desk, but it's unuseable as is. Help?
