I needed to make a multipurpose table to use when drawing up plans for projects or viewing slide/negatives/ etc. with a backlight table…
I made this one and it serves both purposes quite well so far. Basically just oak (legs & top) and pine for the whole project from shop scraps. I used the Kreg Pocket Hole jig for most of the joints for speed of assembly once I drew it up and cut the pieces out.
The whole thing took about a day and a half to complete. With the drafting cover removed you can see the backlit section in the center of the tilting top.
Below the top assembly is the tilt down tray where i keep the large sheets of drafting paper. and the rules for the drafting arm.
P.S. The box you see mounted to the upper right corner of the top is a 110v receptacle and a USB input (lit up) to my PC.
