    Somewhere here or online I saw a tutorial to make an ironing board with the special particle board that's rough on one side and fairly smooth on the other. I can't find it, but here is the big question:

    My son has volunteered to make me an ironing surface with an extended table top. He has the board and we have the batting and canvas for the top. He thinks we need to spray glue the batting to the board. I say no. Your thoughts.

    Does anyone know the tutorial I'm talking about? It would help if I could show him the tute AGAIN. He's driving me nuts and it's a very short trip :roll:

    You don't need glue but it wouldn't hurt either...

    Don't know about the tute but I personally would NOT glue the batting down. How will you change it if necessary?

    I put aluminum foil on the board 1st to keep moisture from warping the board then wrapped the batting to the back and stapled it. Then I wrapped the fabric and stapled it.

    That's the beauty of this particular board. The particle board is a barrier to the moister. The rough side holds the batting in place. After the canvas is put on you can make a "pillow case" for it that can be taken off and washed or replaced.
