I am looking to build/install a light table that will double as a drafting table. This will be used for designs and my occasional stained glass panel. I want to hang it on the wall and be able to adjust it up or down (horizontal table to angled drafting table to vertical against the wall.)
Asking in other forums appears to be a waste of time and there are no good ideas on google oddly enough.
Since lumberjocks never fails me I’ll post the questions here:
1-What can I use to attach it to the wall that will allow for adjustment? My original thought was adjustable front legs and a hinge/cleat/rack on the back end…any hardware advice would be great.
2- What accessories would you put on a drafting table if you could have any? Parallel rule? Lamp?
3-The box needs to have ventilation so the light bulbs don’t overheat. I’m thinking of some kind of fretwork or scrollwork on the sides (6-8” wide, 34” long) Any pattern suggestions?
As alway, I appreciate any good ideas and I’ll post the plans/pictures when I finish!
