This ironing station as the latest addition to my wife’s sewing room.
The design is an adaptation of a kitchen island that was the cover story in Woodworker’s Journal (October 2012 issue). I “floated” the top to allow for the ironing board cover to be strapped to the top. I also eliminated the drawer (unneeded) and made solid shelves with a backstop to prevent things from sliding off the back. Locking casters make this easy to move about and very stable when parked.
The legs are birch with a jatoba (aka Brazilian cherry) inlay. The aprons and shelf supports/trim are also jatoba. The shelves are birch plywood. The top is MDF. All finished in a satin varnish. The base is 33” (w) x 15” (d). The ironing board top is 15” wide and 53” long and fits a standard ironing board cover. The overall height with casters is 37”.
