Drafting Table Conversion

By: Erich Lage & Logan Wittmer
This Tiny Drafting Table Is Perfect For Working On Plans And Sketches.

10 26 01 In Woodsmith 243, I saw a reader’s tip for building a bench grinder stand that hangs on the wall. I don’t use a bench grinder often, but I thought I could use the stand in a different way. 10 26 03 Tilting Top. The original design had a two-layer top and hung on the wall with a couple of lag bolts. The modification that I made to the stand can be seen above. I turned the stand into a drafting table to use in my shop. This was done by installing a continuous hinge between the two-layer top. This allows it to tilt to an inclined drafting position. 10 26 05 To hold the top in the drafting position, I installed a couple of steel stays that I made. 10 26 07 I also installed a stop to keep items from sliding off when I’m using my new drafting table.
