Vintage drafting table – how have you done your homework? Step by step: How to enter a small room in a large drawing board? Normally the drawing boards in addition to bulky take up much space, space that we all have. This solution has been my home for my room to work on yourself, having your computer nearby, space to write, study, make crafts, and all the material at hand. To make the table stand to the wall, we need two wooden slats, one of 90 x 6 x 2.5 cm and a 100 x 6 x 2.5 cm.
I have I painted white as the table, but can be painted the same color as the wall or any color. The shorter strip (90 cm) is the part that will be bolted to the wall, so we measure and mark to place it at the level to which we want to go the table. It will be placed with the widest part against the wall. The other strip (the 100 cm) is placed bolted to above, centered, as a ledge, forming a strip L. The latter will be the hinge bearing the support table. Everything must go well anchored, as it will bear much weight. For the vintage drafting table, use based on a white wooden board 19 mm, also edged in white (you can customize and put the song of another color), measures 100 x 80 cm (No. 1).
This board will fix with glue and screws a small table 10 mm thick, measures 100 x 3.5 cm, perpendicular to one long side of the board, so as to make the stop (No. 2). Both the tabletop and the top will make small holes (No. 3 and No. 4) to pass the cords of PARALEX. To protect these holes I just introduced and glued plastic tubes about the same as the hole (I used plastic bags for recycling brushes). I have also protected the edge holes with white caps paste to which I have made holes with a simple paper punch. On the underside of the dash and near these holes I put a socket for attaching ropes PARALEX to avoid tripping over the legs of the vintage drafting table or with other elements, can regulate the tension of the strings by turning the sockets.
