    If you put holes in that plywood, what you are doing is allowing steam to get into the wood, eventually you will cause it warp and mold!

    Rowentas are NOT good irons..(at least not the newer or low wattage ones)...I used my big board with NO holes in for 5 years with a very expensive Maytag cordless iron..never had any issues...

    How thick of plywood did you use to make the board? I am going to have my husband make me one but we can't agree on how thick the wood should be.

    I saw one at a quilt show several years back and asked my son to make me one for my birthday. I had the ad from the show so I went on line to find the dimensions and emailed him the picture of it. I absolutely love the board.
