This is a drawing board that I built a number of years ago so I could use it to make assembly drawings for more projects. My daughter quickly commandeered it for her own, and I moved to cad type applications so it all worked out.
It is edge-glued white pine with a red oak border. I cut the legs so they would have an outward lean to keep it stable and have room to fold up on the bottom.
This is one of the first projects that I have pictures of, so it seemed appropriate to go along with my new membership on Lumberjocks.
I have been following other peoples projects and blog entries for a few months and think this is the finest collection of woodworkers in the world!

Thanks for taking a look!

Very Nice, I did a similar thing and then ended up drawing evertything on post it notes, (all over my shop). Now I am starting to use Google Sketchup.

Welcome to Lumberjocks! From a lot of experience behind a drafting board, I can say this looks like a solid design, and good idea using the folding legs the way you did.

Very cool, I have a feeling if my daughter sees this, she will want one as well.
