Our new house has a built in ironing board. So what should I do with my old ironing board?

BlairJ 08-31-2012 1:07 PM

Stuff it with styrofoam. Use excessive amounts of duct tape. Surf.

Creamy Filling

I mixed a little water with Gorilla glue laid it out, spritzed it with more water and let it foam up.

Hang on there. That's a photoshopped garage. There are empty shelves, several places where you can see the floor, and even organized tools. How do we know that is a real ironing board?
Oh, and do you ride top up with square edges down or top down and the rounded edge into the wave?

this is getting good...

I have a washer and dryer, French Country hutch, and a gas grill to get rid of and maybe some other furniture to get rid of as well.

Draped with a fabric covering, ready for some resin.

I don't see the gas grill as that good for a surf board so the shirt board was the best idea.

Can't wait to see the finished version.

A little more progress... The fabric top and epoxy have been attached. The fabric was supposed to look like typical ironing board covering but the resin made it look more translucent and I couldn’t get the air bubbles out. I've glassed the bottom of the board.

I thought that I'd do a fabric inlay on the top side of the board. What do you think?

HAHAHA! That's awesome! Even more awesome is the Ohio State bucket in the background.:cool:

bigshow 09-03-2012 5:54 AM

Well, I do live in Columbus and I’m paying tuition for my daughter at the institution. You’d think that they’d throw in the bucket for free after paying tuition but I had to go to Lowes and spend more $ to get the bucket.

At least she's going to the right school :)

Too bad you didn't have some corduroy pants to put on the front. I don't know....maybe you have too much free time. :)

Can't wait to see it in action!

Someone suggested that I use kitchen utensils for the fins, but my wife saw and hid them:) ?There's the fin box install.

That would have been awesome! The pants or maybe even some jorts at the wide part with this shirt at the top:


rallyart 09-29-2012 9:10 PM

Show, I hope you haven't decided to go with the dry cleaner instead.

bigshow 09-30-2012 1:23 PM

The board is essetailly done. I need to put traction on. the problem is that the season here in Ohio is about over, might not get to try it this year.

cowwboy 10-01-2012 5:27 AM

Spent most of the weekend getting ready for vacation, so I didn't get to the glass work. Fins painted and epoxied in place... and fabric chosen. Can't wait to have this thing up in the rack on the lake...

cowwboy 12-09-2012 6:36 PM

That's awesome!!
