I wanted to make a drafting table that would, when not being used for drafting, would become part of a normal table. I used all scavenged wood for this project, except for the poplar top. The table can break into two pieces, one being the main drafting board, and the second being the legs/supports. The table once taken apart can then have the table support accordion so that it can be moved easily. For the whole picture story of the construction go to the link below. I also made a bookshelf attachment for this drafting table, which I will post sometime soon.
