My mom picked up an old drafting table a few years ago at a flea market, and we used it as a beater table in our basement, but when I started to get into woodworking, she offered to send it to California with us to make a project out of it. I wish I had snapped some “before” pics, but it was the same table basically with a ply top. I removed all the hardware and took all the old wood parts and re-did them out of walnut and for the top I used a maple slab. I am using this table as my kitchen table now and don’t plan to do any true drafting on it, so I made the top a little more aesthetic, with curved edges along the shorter sides. It was a fun project to do, and definitely gave me the itch to find some more fixer-upper projects like this one. Hope you like it, we definitely do.
