I own a June Tailor point presser & clapper which I use a lot but for pressing long seams like trousers I have a long clapper/pressing tool.
From the timber trade I bought steamed beech wood 33 inch long 4 inch wide 1 inch thick,this wood is needed for your pressing material it does not transform like other wood can do when you apply steam and heat.

Thanks els. I didn't know that the wood for something like this needed to be special. I would have bought the wrong kind.

Hello Dale,I did not cover it because I only use it for pressing after I use the steam from my iron ,but ofcourse you ca put an old woolen blanket on top of the wood and cover that with a piece of cotton

That's a good idea. It would make a good sleeve board too. Did you make a cover for it? My sleeve board needs replacing.
