Hi, can this be warped without a warping board?
Hello and thank you for your question.
It is always possible to warp without a board. It is slightly more tricky but that's what makes it fun! I have seen people using chairs, tables etc. I have even seen a three-tier magazine stand used which worked a treat.
I hope this helps answer your question. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me again.
Kind regards Cheryl
