Drafting Table: Part 1

We have always had a strong love for drafting tables. Not only are they great for working, they are also incredibly diverse from bare-bones basic to fancy-shmancy mechanisms. After a trip to the local reclaimed store, an old Model T-Ford jack became the starting point for our take on the drafting table.

After the full-scale mock up and lots of discussion and editing we started making the real thing out of walnut and steel. It is always more assuring after seeing how the prototype works before moving onto the final material. 

And now we wait! (For tung oil to dry :D) 

Walnut, with a few changes here and there. Can you spot the differences?
