cool thank you
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
cool thank you
I use the old wooden ironing boards and there are no holes in them..I think the wooden ones will not be a problem with burning up irons. I also bought a second board at a thrift shop (wooden again) and have that just for clothes. So my homemade big board sits over my regular ironing board...so far no problem!!Originally Posted by quilt3311
Look what I finally got my Honey to make for me yesterday. I am lovin it already. Yep after he read everyones tips yesterday, here my end result for my very own big ironing board. Thanks for all the great posts-all were very helpful.
Under side 62 x 25
Good Idea!----I need one of those.
Thanks Joan, actually it was so easy, not sure why I hadn't made it myself before now.
I love mine.. I really really do... although I do want to look in to building nice sturdy yet collapsible legs to mine... It would make transporting it to sewing group a lot easier - one less thing to take with me lol.
Craftiladi...it looks as though it is a bit longer to the left than the legs so could be "end heavy". If you get a clotilde magazine there is a support you can buy/make to put under that end. Cost was less than $5 for me, cuz we had some of the parts!! It's made of the plastic sewer pipes with a flange to sit it in!! Works so slick!! Enjoy your new table top!!!
This is exactly how I made mine....sold it when I left AK and now I need a new one!
This is such a useful tute...I just showed it to the hubby....fingers crossed hope he makes me one.
I would be willing to bet it was more of a problem with the irons than not having holes in the ironing board. There has been numerous complaints about the Rowenta irons not lasting even under just normal use. I have gone through 2 in 18 months and I only used them to iron my husbands dress pants and shirts..I wont buy another .Originally Posted by quilt3311
