My college aged son wanted a drawing table he could use standing or sitting. He google image searched vintage drafting tables. He combined different elements and came up with his own design. The top is 42”x32”. It is walnut as are the feet and the frame is oak. The metal tightening knobs are salvaged from an old junked drafting table, the rest are turned with a nut embedded. It took us longer than anticipated, figuring arm lengths and trunnion placements but it works well and can be adjusted by one person. He also wanted a plexiglass center to be used as a light box. Eventually it will be back lit.
