Here is the drafting table I just finished. It is curly maple and African mahogany, finished with Tung Oil. The design came together really well, and it looks like it did in my head before making it. There are mistakes and little issues which my wife insists only I see, but overall I think it came out very well. It is adjustable with regard to tabletop height and tilt. The curves on the top are not inlaid, but rather curved pieces glued up into the top. I would love comments or suggestions.
My main question are regarding how humidity may affect the moving parts. It’s winter, and I’m in Minnesota, so there simply isn’t any humidity at the moment, but spring is here (meaning it’s above zero today) and summer is coming (for a week in July), and I’m wondering if this will cause any changes. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!
