I made myself the heavy piece of furniture because I had the room to set up a big, dedicated pressing station...which I love!! I can press something over 1/2 yard all at once.

I know it is not what you are looking for but I bought an old IKEA table off Craigslist, covered it with two layers of batting and then a subtle paint-speckled print by McKenna Ryan (??) and stapled all in place. I too set it on risers to bring the table to hip bone height, sure saves the back. I would love to cover it in wool felt but so far have not found a felt wide enough.

I personally wouldn't try it not only because of fumes that could be dangerous but because but because of the potential fire hazard.

Check out the links I put in my previous message. They have wool you can buy inn different thicknesses and by the yard. Some have a width of 60 inches and one is 72” wide. Not sure the size of your table, but you might give them a try. I think they can actually make what you want.

I have watched several Utube videos on recovering an old ironing board and found it was very interesting to see what everyone uses as a base.

I just recently purchased a wool saddle pad that might work nicely for you. They are 30” x 30” and are around $26 at State Line Tack: https://www.statelinetack.com/item/m...ner/SLT901243/. If you need to cover the whole table, two would easily do it.
