|I’m old and cranky and have a bad back, so I craved a cutting table, a nice big cutting table. Two problems stood in my way – big problems. Well, actually, they are problems of having too little…too little money and too little space.
My solution? Two ironing boards and a piece of 3/8 inch plywood that I had cut at Home Depot to exactly fit under my cardboard cutting pad. Most lumber yards/home centers will cut your plywood for free. I paid less than $25 US for the ironing board and plywood, combined and fits behind doors. I set it up in the living room and take it down when DH wants to watch TV. It’s the right height, but adjustable and I can get around on all four sides.
It would have cost less if I had been willing to wait and gotten the ironing board at a yard sale or resale shop. Patience has never been my long suit. One of these days I may get around to padding it, too.
