Ironing Table

Posted on by in Misc

This is something I’ve wanted to do since about a month after the business started. How many years later now? But it’s done.

I’m sure there are a million tutes out there for making these. I just wanted something tall and wide enough to iron the WOF without moving anything.


My back will appreciate it.


I’ve stretched many canvases in my day. Folding corners is like riding a bike.


Lots of layers later then the top went on. I didn’t worry too much about the bottom being pristine. If you judge me for what the underside of my ironing board looks like, then perhaps you are the one with the problem. 😉



All done. I also made a cover for easy washing. Perfect.


Next up for the studio… the sewing table. Expect that to be complete by 2016 or so.

    That’s genius Emily! Did you just use batting layers or is there some heat reflective padding in there too?

    1. Emily says:

      Yup, there is a heat layer in there. There was no one way to make these things — but that layer seemed like a good idea!

    I know what you mean! I got a WOF wide cover that fits over my regular ironing board about 4 years ago for Mother’s Day. One of the best gifts I’ve ever received!
