Drafting table.

This is my first project that I have posted on this site.

I made this table from 3/4 cherry board. It has back-lit frosted glass for tracing, stain glass, or photo negative viewing. The table is fully adjustable and had wooded knobs that lock it in place.

I hope you like it!

Very Very nice table, beautiful construction and wood choice. How did you fix the glass in place?

Really nice table. What is the thickness of the glass/plexiglass? I need something like this but I’ll make mine lower so I can sit on a chair! Thanks for posting and sharing and welcome to LJ.

You did a nice job on that drafting table.

Very nice. My father is looking for a new drafting table, and this one gives me some ideas.
