Sleeve board recover

I have been wanting a sleeve board for awhile but the new ones I have found are metal and not very sturdy.  Wish I would have kept the one I had in the 70's when I did a lot of garment sewing.  This wooden sleeve board was found on eBay and came with a clapper.  The downside was the cover was very stained and I was worried that some of the stains might come through on my projects.  I took the cover off to clean it and the padding was stained as well.  Decided to start over fresh with wool batting and made an attractive cover.  I really like how it turned out.
