My counter height pressing table is one of the most useful things in my workspace. It's wider and sturdier than an ironing board, and the plywood base makes it a much better choice for pressing patchwork seams. I've gotten a lot of questions about how I put my pressing table together so, while making a new cover, I took some photos to write a little tutorial. Here goes!
Bought a regular wire shelving unit, then purchased a 20x60 piece of MDF board and covered it in batting and fabric. The shelving unit not only supports the MDF board (which isn’t attached by the way); but also offers a lot of storage, and as you can see she even uses S-Hooks for hanging other ironing necessities.
