A Few years back I lost my Drafting table that I did all my art work on, in a house fire along with most of my wood working tools. Also the desire to create anything. I am now I am in a new home started to get back into wood working again. I am also wanting to get back into creating my art again. the old me coming back. What I need now is plans for a Drafting table. One that would fit a 30X36" desk top would be great. I have an Ideal what I am wanting but would like to see some ideals.
Decided to make a computer desk and to repurpose what I had left from the drafting table. The legs & the frame have a new life as a bench. Made that awhile ago. That leaves me with a desk top, 1 1/8" thick, & drawers. I cut the top down to 26" and kept the length. I plan on cutting down the metal caps on the ends to keep it from warping. A round over on the front & a little angle on the end to save the hips. I took the cut off from the top to get my material for the legs. The base is leftovers from a door that I took apart and made some floating shelves. I can flip the board & hide the hole. Routed some slots in the leg for that decorative element & a round over to soften them up. Cut the tendons on the table saw & will clean those up with a chisel. I'll put a couple of cross braces in the dead space. Layout & cut the mortise. I'll cut a taper on the ends of the base to keep from stubbing my toes. TBC
