when i block smaller things (like socks) I take my cork board, put a white towel over it and pin the items into shape (using rust proof pins, can pick those up in the sewing section at joanns) on it then put it in my "wind tunnel" (aka: my craft room that's supposed to be a sun room... it's about 9 by 12 and has a full sized ceiling fan that when on high, becomes a wind tunnel... can also get quite warm in there in the summer so it becomes perfect for blocking or drying fabric that i don't want to throw in the dryer)

I have yet to make anything larger... however, i now have our old diningroom table in there that i can spread things out on (it's currently my cutting table)
