Despite the movement to CAD software, drafting and drawing tables are still the standard desk choice for architects and designers. They became popular in the early 1900s during the Industrial Revolution and were often referred to as drafting boards.
What sets a drafting table apart from its desk counterpart is the adjustable surface. Distortion can occur when drawing three-dimensional items on a flat surface. Drafting tables allow you to tilt the drawing to improve visual perspective. Most artists find that it’s more ergonomic to draw complex subjects or blueprints on a 30 to 40 degree angled surface.
Drawing and drafting tables typically have an oversized work surface with a full-length pencil ledge to keep papers and drawing instruments in place. Today’s models come with a variety of upgraded features including sit-to-stand capabilities, built-in lighting and computer compatibility.
