    The Reliants are really expensive and range from $200 - $250. They are supposed to be the Cadillacs of all ironing boards. - way out of my budget.

    Years ago I complained about that. DH bought some PVC piping that just fit over the feet of a board like yours. He extended the feet "out" further....it worked!!! Oh, also, use a level and make sure the floor is level....!!!

    Mine used to wobble until a made a 'quilters ironing surface' with a piece of plywood, batting and a cover. Set it on top of the wobbler and the extra weight seems to have done the trick. I also like the idea of making the legs longer for more stability.

    I bought a super size ironing board at Walmart. It has the four individual legs and it never wobbles. It has a rack underneath it and a iron caddy on the end. It takes up more room then the average board though. I noticed it was $47 just last week at Walmart.

    Hi Bella,
    That sounds like the one I got at Costco. Don't you just love it? Never thought I would be so attached to an ironing board!!

    I have an old ironing board with really wide feet.
    Then I bought a Polder Iron Rest and attached to the end. That way the iron doesn't ever have a chance to get knocked off or get wobbled off the end.

    My husband also made a Big Board that sits on top of my ironing board. Sure makes ironing yardage a lot easier.
    And the Big Boards sell for about $100.00 + shipping so that's why he made me one.

    I'd love to see pics of your big board version. Can you share pics?

    Look for a board with this style of feet. They're a lot more stable.

    this is a board from Target

    When I moved to my new house a year and a half ago I thought I would get a new ironing board ... so I got one of the cheapy ones from Target. I HATE it! Much too wobbley ... so I got my old wooden one back. It must be an antique by now, it was my mom's.
