Thank you for the information. I was at the local discount store and they have an oversized one. It is around $40 and while it isn't exactly what I would like to have, it appears to be sturdy and may be an option.

My father made iron board from plywood, lenght just so, similiar to a surf board, then mother covered it with fabric, straped by elastics and finally, purchased some iron protector fabric and held secure in place. It was just a top no metal feet etc..and leans against two objects. I can place over my kitchen sink, or tow chairs, easty to travel.

Just a note about your "old" ironing board. Keep it!! And add a big board on top if you are looking for more ironing space. I have a very old, heavy and sturdy ironing board from around 1950 and wouldn't give it up for the world. I have yet to see another board that can hold a candle to this one and everyone I know would tell you the same.
My DH gave me a big board that goes on top of my regular board several years ago and I love it especially for ironing large pieces of fabric. I can put it on and off as I wish. Just my opinion.

Ironing table is ideal if you only iron once in a while, but need the equipment to work properly. No more problems with your iron rest these steam ironing tables comes with a metal steam iron rest that's adjustable for left or right-handed use Plus the table is adjustable to your own height.https://itday.com/irons-steamers/top-6- ... de-buyers/
