Do you remember what kind of wood was used to make it?
The top is 3/8" plywood, the nicer board not full of knots and not ply board.
Is it heavy?
I can lift it by myself and I can carry it by myself from my sewing room to another room or out to the car to pack it for camp. It is not light but not too heavy.
Did you finish the wood before you covered it, i.e. paint or coat it with polyurethane?
The wood is unfinished, the edges are rounded a little and sanded smooth.
What did you use to cover it with, regular batting and fabric?
The bottom layer is a piece of carpet felt, 2nd layer is warm and natural batting and finally covered with muslin. The muslin is stapled to the bottom of the board. The top two layers are cut to the edge of board and not tacked down.
