I love the black top on this drafting table.  Chalkboard paint would work great for mine as I don't use it for traditional "drafting" but for sketching and crafts!

Mau wanted to design and build a drawing table for his wife, an illustrator, that would appear more feminine than the traditional drafting table. This drawing table is made from maple, cherry, and birch and is finished with tung oil and urethane.

This Boxcar Limited design is obviously around a traditional drafting table but incorporates the use of the smaller boxcar springs and accents of the boxcar floor grates.  The steel floor grates were used to hold the floor to the train car frame and also served as a wash grate for cargo spillage.  Mechanically pivots with handmade mechanisms and indeed a work of art.  This piece comes in one size and is fitted with a 3x5 reclaimed Cargo Floor top.

Rustic meets traditional meets hardcore architectural nerding.  The island base is an antique drafting table.
