All the members of my family are right handed however they each use the iron board differently.

If you use an ironing board, what direction is the smaller end pointed, to the left or to the right?

Actually, I use both ends of the ironing board when ironing. So I will either go around to the other side or spin the board around. Especially if I'm pressing a variety of garments in one go.
It has been a long time since I pulled out one of those babies. And every time I do, I get confused about which way I should point the smaller end!

OK for this study:
I will say I point to the left always with the smallest part
of the Ironing Board.
I don't normally iron my own clothes, but if I'm doing my husband's or tablecloths or something I'll iron with my right hand and the ironing board pointing left until my arm gets tired then swap it around to point the other way and iron left handed.
I have the smaller end pointed to my left, I'm right-handed. I don't really think it matters which way it is positioned, so long as it's comfortable for the way you work. I don't often use my conventional board, except for quick finishing touches. I have a padded bolster, a sleeve board, a table-top (smaller than a conventional one) board, a large bench-sized board (1m x 1.8m) that I made for when I'm sewing drapes or other big jobs, and I also have a garment steamer. I tend to use the sleeve board and my bench board the most.
My Elna Press sits on top of ironing board.
Small end to my left.
Yes . . . and to the left as I am right handed.
