Susan,

I will not attach these ironing boards to anything. They sit on the table while I work. I set up my machine on one part of the table, cutting mat and ruler on another, and the ironing board just fits.

I was simply sharing about the boards I had made. One for me, and one for a club I belong to that quilts (among other things) for local charity. I took two pieces of wood that were 37 x 24 x 2 and wrapped towels around them for padding and stapled them in place. Then I made a pillow case out of that teflon type material they sell at Hancocks. Slid that over it, stapled it down and it's a usable, easily stored ironing board. None of my friends have to mess with the old one getting it up and down and stuff like that. It worked out nice.
