    My new ironing table

    Saw this on another quilters facebook posting. Hardwood workbench from Harbor Freight topped w/a canvas covered board for ironing surface. I am so much happier with this than my old ironing board.

    Wonderful and more stable than a regular ironingboard.

    That is a wonderful use. Wish I had the room, those drawers would be wonderful to have right there.

    Nicely done and with additional storage too.

    Looking good! That is a nice work bench and it would work for a buffet table as well.

    You are brilliant. It's a beautiful, sturdy and useful table. And at 33 inches high it should work very well for cutting.

    Looks great, will work wonderful I am sure. Second thought you could take ironing board off top and use for cutting with a cutting mat. Then could iron or cut or measure. I like your thinking.
    Going back through posted items I see someone else already had the idea.

    That's wonderful! Does it have drawers too? I want one!! I just looked up Harbor Freight and there is one in the next city. Does it come already assembled?

    This might make a really nice cutting table as well!

    looks beautiful auntjo... should give you a sturdy ironing platform.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    If my sewing room could have accommodated it, I'd have one too. Just not enough wall space with 3 machines. As it is, Steve made me a quilters ironing board (25 x 65) for Christmas. Love it.

    I like it! I might have to check that out; we recently have a Harbor Freight in my "shopping" town and have been itching to get in there to look around. Now I have a reason:-)

    Thanks for this idea. I have a Harbor Freight near by. I will have to look into it.
    Never put off what you can do today, because tomorrow may never come.

    my new ironing board

    we got a new harbor freight catalog today (1/27). the catalog said postmaster should deliver between 1/30 and 2/1, so i assume the sale starts 2/1? this table is advertised for $159.99. should you have a h.f. 20% coupon, that is even better. hope this helps for anyone who is interested in purchasing a workbench/ironing table.

    wow, what a beauty she is! I'm jealous!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wish I had room for it, have looked at them for many uses. But no place to put it so I will just look and dream.
